Speaking on Wednesday at cabinet session, Dr Hassan Rouhani said, "Iran is still ready to accept the legal monitoring of the IAEA and to cooperate with it within the framework of the law".

The president also responded to US claims and propaganda that they are ready to negotiate with Iran, saying that instead of making baseless statements for negotiation, the Americans had better return from the wrong path they have taken”.

The President added, "Opening the space for the glorious presence of women in various activities is one of the honours of the government of prudence and hope”.

He continued, "Martyrs Beheshti and Motahari were great assets that were taken from us and their replacement in our history is very difficult and complicated”.

Stating that, “We are the same government that had the highest economic growth in the world in 2018,” Dr Rouhani added, "The current problems of the society are due to the sanctions and coronavirus”.

“During the past six months, all the executive officials of the country have not had a day off, not even during bank holidays, and until the last minute and second of the government, they proudly continue to work and serve the great nation of Iran with the same spirit of the first hour,” continued the President.

He also went on to state, "I am aware of the annoying fluctuations in the price of goods, but we have the power to overcome these problems”.

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran continued saying, "Our oil and non-oil exports in June were different from the previous three months, and the situation is gradually improving”.

He added, "Imam Khomeini's (RA) explicit fatwa was that currency belongs to the government and the price of currency is related to the government”.

“Those who are active in the non-oil export line are making a jihad, but we will not allow certain people to take advantage of non-oil exports when people are under pressure,” said Rouhani.

Dr Rouhani also said that people should know that the government is determined to control prices, adding, "The government cannot be indifferent to the price of housing and rents, and the proposals are being completed, and once they are finalised, they will help people regarding rents”.

Stating that to solve the housing problem, the solution is for everyone to participate in housing production, he continued saying, "The process of constructing housing must be accelerated”.

“The government has many facilities, and if these facilities are provided, the situation in the country will change,” continued the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Dr Rouhani also went on to stated, "According to the Minister of Health, following the efforts of Health Defenders, from next week we will see a decrease in coronavirus in red provinces such as Khuzestan, Bushehr, Hormozgan, Azerbaijan and Kurdistan”.

He continued, "My last point is to warn European countries and the IAEA. Our interaction with the IAEA has been friendly and legal. We have always cooperated with the agency. Agency inspectors were always present on a daily basis, inspecting and reporting wherever they wanted".

"In 16 and 17 reports, they have always talked about the JCPOA and non-JCPOA topics, saying that Iran has fully cooperated with us," said Rouhani.

Dr Rouhani added, "Recently, unfortunately, the Zionist and American regimes have put pressure on the IAEA, and I am afraid that these swindlers infect the IAEA, and the IAEA, whose judgement must always be accurate, fair and correct, has been forced to exhume. The agency's job is to let the world know that nuclear material is completely under control and how it is consumed. The agency has nothing else to do".

"The agency wants to say that the activity is peaceful, and the peaceful activity means that I am in charge of calculating the materials and I am supervising the activity, so the agency has nothing else to do. Now the Zionist regime and the United States have come and they are pressuring the IAEA to monitor the issue of 18 or 20 years ago and find it," said the President.

Dr Rouhani added, "They are deceiving the IAEA and deviating it from its path. ‌ Of course, whenever we want to give a definite answer, it is easy for us, but the basis of Iran's work is cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency, but the IAEA must maintain its independence and do not deviate from its legal path under pressure from the United States and the Zionist Regime".

"Europeans on the other hand did not fulfill their legal obligations since 2018. They have not fulfilled their obligations, before the withdrawal of the United States, and even after the withdrawal of the United States. They keep apologising to us by phone and in person, saying that we could not do our job".

He said, "Now, in a special situation when the Zionist regime and the United States created, they come in and infect themselves for nothing. We do not have such an expectation from the three European countries, we do not expect anything from other countries as well, but in this issue, Russia, China and some other countries acted very well and acted decisively and legally and did not succumb to American pressure. Our expectation is that they will not be pressured by the United States and that the IAEA will be able to maintain its independence".

"This new man who has come to the Agency should know that the reputation of the Agency is very important for the international community. The reputation of the agency must be maintained and we are ready to help them," said Rouhani.

He added, "I would like to say here that Iran is still ready to accept the legal monitoring of the IAEA, and Iran is ready to continue to work closely with the IAEA, albeit within the framework of the law and regulations".

Dr Rouhani added, "My last point is that recently the White House has repeatedly stated that it is ready to negotiate, to sit down and resolve our issues, and why Iran is waiting for the elections!".

"We are not procrastinating anything for before or after the election, we are always ready. Any time that the United States declares that it has returned to the framework of law, it declares that it has returned to the rules of the United Nations and says that I have returned to my commitments in the UN Security Council, and the US Congress and the White House are determined to return from their wrong path and join the 5+1, we are ready at the moment and this is not something we will decide later, our decision is clear".

"If they come and surrender to the law and apologise, compensate the damage they did to the Iranian nation, pay compensation, and come under the framework of the law, who has a problem at all? We don't have a problem, it is them who have created the problem, they broke the negotiation table and destroyed it, and they oppressed the Iranian nation"

"This is simple, an apology to the Iranian nation. Compensation, reimbursement and returning to the 5+1 framework can still be the solution".

"But we know that these unfounded statements are baseless because of the problems they faced for the elections. If it is real, if they do not lie, if they are not looking for solving their own problems, it is easy to apologise and return to the law and regulations, and then they will see that the Iranian nation and the Iranian government are always within the framework of justice, fairness, law and international law" added Rouhani.
