President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday that Iran opted for national resistance to the US maximum pressure and active diplomacy and that has not decided to negotiate with the US despite some suggestions from many states.
From the very beginning, the strategy the Islamic Republic of Iran has taken up is revolutionary patience and rationality, said President Rouhani in Majlis (Iranian Parliament).
By revolutionary patience and rationality, we didn’t let Iran get isolated and were able to isolate the US administration, Rouhani said.
He added that this is the first time since the US became a superpower that Washington conspires against a country but gets frowned upon by the world and doesn't get its objectives.
The world is at least in words and policies in harmony with the Iranian people. Iran is victorious in terms of International Law and politics over the US wrongful strategy, he said, in reference to the legal proceedings Iran initiated with the Hague-based International Court of Justice against the US seeking reparations for the damages inflicted on Iran by the US unilateral sanctions.
The US did not heed the ICJ provisional measures urging Washington to stop causing damages on Iranian economy.
