“The honorable president adopted mighty and appropriate stances during this trip, particularly in his address to the United Nations General Assembly,” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari told Tasnim News Agency in Tehran on Monday.
The commander, however, added that President Rouhani should have deferred talking to US President Barack Obama until after verification of the White House’s sincerity towards Iran in practice.
The IRGC commander further asked the US officials to show honesty, and stated, “Given the fact that the Islamic Republic of Iran demonstrated its goodwill, especially by the stances and remarks made in the 68th session of the United Nations (General Assembly), now it is America’s turn to build trust with practical measures and prove its sincerity in practice."
The White House should lift sanctions against the Iranian nation, release Iran's frozen assets, drop hostility and plots against the Iranian nation and admit its right to peaceful nuclear technology to restore Iran's confidence, said Jafari.
He further referred to the attitude of “heroic flexibility” as a wise notion expressed by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei and a "sign of Iran’s outstanding position in the world".
