ˈThe front line soldiers of our country’s diplomacy showed the reality to the world nations that Iran and the Iranian nation favor sound logic and dialogue; ˈ said President Rouhani in a meeting with the Iranian media representatives.
“If it becomes clear that the opposite side respects the Iranian nation’s rights and viewpoints within the framework of international law, we will continue the talks and if necessary extend the time for the negotiations,” he said.
The president said that Iran seeks a “win-win” result in the talks, which would be in the interest of all sides.
If the talks lead to final deal, that would benefit the world and regional countries as well as the Iranian nation, Dr.Rouhani said, adding that Tehran has come to the negotiating table to contribute to regional stability and security as well as global interests.
President Rouhani said that the success of these negotiations is both to the benefit of the world and the Iranian nation, arguing, ˈIt has been cleared for everyone that we are negotiating for the sake of the region’s stability and security and to safeguard the world nationsˈ interests.ˈ
ˈThese negotiations have by no means been held under the pressure of the sanctions; we have never been sacred of the sanctions, and we are still not; the government’s programs are devised aimed at achieving national objectives, regardless of the outcome of these negotiations,ˈ said the president.
He reiterated that Tehran hopes that the other side has realized this reality that if it takes a step it is aimed at securing the interests of the world nations, the region, and naturally also the Iranian nation.
President Rouhani stressed that his government does need the support of the entire media, but not for itself as the 11th government, but for securing the country’s national interests.
The president asked the media to choose their headlines and write their articles and news items in line with the people’s interests and demands, and not those of certain groups, parties, or lobbies.
ˈToday the people demand creation of job opportunities, under such conditions that we have such a huge population of educated unemployed young people, ˈ said the president.
