Shafaqna- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani holds press conference at the UN on Wednesday. In this press conference, He said that Trump’s decision to withdraw from JCPOA has “isolated” the US and It was our decision to try to isolate the US on this issue of the nuclear deal.

Rouhani urged President Donald Trump to “stop bullying” Tehran into submitting into the demands of the US.

In a  press conference with Western media, Rouhani also said it is “clear” during his meeting with world leaders at the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, that Trump’s decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal has “isolated” the US, aljazeera reported.

“The US decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal was not agreed upon by other parties. It is considered a mistake by other countries,” Rouhani said in an unprecedented press conference with Western media.

“One day, the US will return to the nuclear deal. The US cannot continue this process. This is not in the interest of the US, Iran and other parties,” he said. “It was our decision to try to isolate the US on this issue of the nuclear deal.”

What Iran wants is for the US to “return to what is legal and stand by the UN Security Council resolution” on the nuclear deal, and “stop bullying” his country, Rouhani said.

Earlier on Wednesday, Rouhani’s foreign minister Javad Zarif referred to the reimposition of US sanctions as an act of “unprecedented vengence”.

Zarif said the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal is “unlawful and unjustified”.
