In meeting with Japan’s Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida, Hassan Rouhani pointed to Iran’s nuclear talks and said "This is the 3rd round of talks in the last 83 days that the 11th administration has been in office.”
The president stated "The Islamic Republic of Iran would like the world’s public opinion to know that Iran’s nuclear activities and technology are only peaceful and that the country’s entire activities are performed under the International Atomic Energy Organization and within the framework of the NPT,” adding "the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to resolve any logical concern regarding its nuclear program.”
Stressing mutual understanding and respect, Rouhani asserted that threats and sanctions will solve no problem, but will rather complicate the matter.
He further maintained "The negotiators must give heed to the point that this is a unique situation presented to all by the Iranian nation on the June 14 election. One of the principal tenets adopted by the Iranian nation is to cooperate with the world.”
"I hope the side negotiating Iran on the 5+1 talks would grasp the unique opportunity which the Iranian nation has given the West and the international community, so that we may reach the positive outcome in a reasonable while,” Rouhani added.
