Rouhani repeats nuclear pact ultimatum as Trump seeks talks

Narendra Modi Narendra Modi Hassan Rouhani modi Hassan Rouhani meeting India Iran oil trade Modi SCO summit Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit Indian Express

Speaking at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said: "Pressures that the USA administration is putting on Iran, China and other countries are aimed at dominating the entire Asia and the world".

Iran stopped complying in May with some commitments in the 2015 nuclear deal that was agreed with global powers, after the United States unilaterally withdrew from the accord in 2018 and ratcheted up sanctions on Tehran.

The European Union is an ardent backer of the deal and has pledged to support Tehran in the face of crippling United States sanctions, but Iranian officials have voiced frustration at the lack of concrete steps taken so far. However, he fell short of telling details of actions Tehran is planning to take.

"Other countries also need to pay their share to save this important agreement", he added.

"We want to get them back to the table", Trump told Fox News in an interview. Japan is working to ease tensions between Iran and the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump. "To put a bomb at the side of the boat is not something we are considering".

In this photo released by Iran's state-run IRIB News Agency, an oil tanker is on fire in the sea of Oman, June 13, 2019. The UAE urged world powers on Saturday to help secure maritime traffic and energy supplies.

"I think the Iranians are feeling the pressure of sanctions", he added.

Last month, Iran had halted some of the commitments, following an order from the country's National Security Council.

On May 12, days after Washington announced the military deployment, four oil tankers near the port were damaged in what the UAE called "sabotage attacks".

He backs his claim by saying there had been a precedent "during World War II, when Americans targeted their own ships near Japan to create an excuse for hostility".
