Iranian President Hassan Rouhani Tuesday lambasted the Western powers for imposing sanctions against other nations, especially in the less-developed countries of the world, IRNA reported.
“We should not forget millions of Iraqis who were harmed and killed by sanctions imposed on them under the legal guise prescribed by bodies and still a considerable number of them have to suffer throughout the world," Ro”hani said in his address at the 68th session of the UN General Assembly.
The Iranian president stressed that these sanctions are violate human rights. "These sanctions violate the inalienable human rights, including right to peace, right to development, right to access health, right to education and more importantly right to live," Rouhani said. He warned that the outcome of the sanctions would be warmongering and destruction of humans. "Iran is“looking for solution to problems and not creating problems," Rouhan” said.
The president said the flames of sanctions do not only affect the victims of sanctions, but are also harmful for the economy of the countries facing the sanctions. "Let me point to Iran's nuclear case, as Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution (Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei) has put it admitting Iran's natural legal and inalienable right is the easiest way to resolve this issue.
"This is not a political motto, but it is based on a deep knowledge of Iran's nuclear technology, the international conditions... and the necessity for finding common goals and interests for reaching a common understanding and common security," he added.
The Iranian president said that in other words, Iran and other regional players should pursue two common objectives as two inseparable parts of political solution to Iran's nuclear case.’
