President Hassan Rouhani in an interview with Russia 2 TV Channel, responding to a question on sanctions imposed by Washington against Moscow, said that sanction is not in benefit of anyone, and the countries that are under pressure should resist and deal with it and others should help them.
Emphasizing the need for cooperation of neighboring states to fight against the sanctions, president Rouhani said: "In the current circumstances Iran will support the government and people of Russia.”
President said that the best option in energy and gas sectors is cooperation, interaction and healthy competition among gas exporting countries to meet the interests of all exporters.
The President noted to Iran's nuclear negotiations with the G5+1 in New York: "The steps however short have been taken forward, and we must strive to get a comprehensive agreement in the remaining opportunity."
"The sanctions that the West has imposed on Iran in recent years are all illegal," he added, saying that dialogue is the only way that exists to resolve disputes between Iran and the West.
Iran will never stop its peaceful nuclear activities, which have always been under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and within the framework of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
President said if the P5+1 group shows real determination, a final nuclear agreement between Tehran and the six powers is possible.
Iran is firmly determined to reach an agreement with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - Russia, China, France, Britain, and the United States – plus Germany by the November deadline and if the opposite side is committed as firmly, “we can come to [an] agreement,” said President Rouhani.
President urged the negotiating partners to show more resolve, addressing particularly the United States which, he said, has been dragging its feet more than others even though all parties understand the necessity for reaching an agreement as soon as possible.
