Iran's Larijani: US should return to nuclear deal

Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani underlined that Washington should give up its tough language and adopt the language of logic to break the deadlock between the two countries.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani underlined that Washington should give up its tough language and adopt the language of logic to break the deadlock between the two countries.

"The US should return to the nuclear deal," Larijani told reporters in a press conference in Tehran on Sunday.

"The Islamic Republic has not closed the doors but the main issue is that the Americans should understand that these methods (pressures) have existed in the past too and they did not yield results," he added, noting that the US should use the past experiences to resolve the issue.

"The way is not closed," Larijani said.

"The policy of maximum pressure is wrong and it should be corrected," he stressed.

Washington withdrew from the internationally-endorsed 2015 nuclear deal with Iran on May 2018, reimposed the toughest-ever sanctions against the country and started a plan to zero down Tehran's oil sales.

Under the nuclear agreement reached between Iran and six world powers in July 2015, Tehran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions.

Early in August, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reminded the White House that harsh policies against Iran, China and Russia will not serve Washington’s intention to reverse the shift in global power, advising American officials to stop worsening the situation around their country with isolating moves.

In two successive tweets on August 02, Zarif said the US cannot change the fact that global power is shifting in favor of Iran, Russia and China by resorting to sanctions and killing deals, advising Washington to, instead, adapt to the new realities on the world stage and “stop isolating itself”.

Early in July, Zarif said that Washington is no longer capable of paying the price to keep its status as the most powerful country in international relations, adding that the US economy is not as unrivaled as it was before and consequently incompetent to pay the price for American superiority.

Speaking on the sidelines of the National Day of Industry and Mining, Zarif told reporters that Europe is now after independence from the US in its economy because the US economy is no longer the unchallenged super economy of the world.

Late in May, Larijani quoted Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei as saying that US utilitarianism is in decline as it creates 'international anomalies.

He added the creation of the ISIL terrorist group had roots in the US utilitarianism with the aim of destroying the Islamic nations.

Also, in March, Zarif also censured Washington’s foreign policy and interventionist role in the Middle East, asserting, “Its recklessness just displays panic of an empire in decline.”

Early in November, Top Military Aide to the Iranian Supreme Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi asserted that the US' power is fading away and Washington is unable to win control over Iranians’ economy and fate.
