Bending to US' will equals end of our dignity: Pres. Rouhani

  • We will bring the US to its knees’ Iranian president vows resistance against Washington

"We will not give in [to pressure] and will maintain our national and historical dignity in the face of the US", Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday, as cited by Press TV.

The version published by Javad Zarif on Thursday takes Pompeo's words pretty much verbatim, but replaces Iran with the US. "The United States stands ready to work with the members of this Council to take real action against the threat Iran poses", he said. "But we will not sacrifice our independence", said Rouhani in an address broadcast on state television.

Under the deal, Iran restricted its enrichment program to ease concerns it could not be put to developing nuclear weapons and in return won relief from sanctions.

"A handful of bullies with miscalculations and misconceptions about the whole world, including Iran, have come to power [in the US], and are not committed to any agreements and treaties", said Rouhani.

To ease tensions that plunged the rial against the USA dollar to a record low, the Central Bank of Iran announced its plan to create secondary currency market, which would be dedicated to selling US dollars to importers of essential goods by exporters of non-oil products such as petrochemicals.

Joao Pedro Vale de Almeida, head of the European Union delegation to the United Nations, said preserving the Iran nuclear deal was "a key security interest for the bloc and the whole worldwide community".

The warning followed demonstrations and a rare strike Monday at the Grand Bazaar in Tehran, and after earlier reports of street uprisings in provincial cities. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Iranian Supreme Leader, ordered the AEOI in June 2018 to enhance nuclear capacity. Even the State Department had to acknowledge that cutting off Iranian oil imports completely is a "challenge" that no country "wants to do voluntarily".

MPs meanwhile held a closed-door session to discuss the fluctuations in the foreign exchange market and the protests, state news agency IRNA reported.

"The people of Iran are exhausted of the corruption, injustice, and incompetence from their leaders", Mr Pompeo said in a statement.

Iran continues to face a host of serious economic challenges, including high unemployment and a weakening currency, due to longstanding USA sanctions.

Iran also has suggested it could immediately ramp up its production of uranium in response to the US pullout, potentially escalating the very situation the nuclear deal sought to avoid — having an Iran with a stockpile of highly enriched uranium that it could use to build atomic bombs.

He said a fall below 1.4 million bpd - the level two years ago, before the nuclear deal - was unlikely as Iran would remain able to sell some oil overseas through barter deals.
