President Calls for Honoring Iran’s Rights to Join Global Economy
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani called on the international community to respect Iran's rights to join the global economy in a bid to develop non-oil exports.

TEHRAN (Iran News) – Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani made the remarks at an economic session with the participation of cabinet members in Tehran this morning.

The President made the remarks in the context of Iran’s rights for membership in the World Trade Organization.

The development of non-oil exports is an effective tool for achieving policies on the Economy of Resistance underlined by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution to fight the US unjust and illegitimate sanctions, the president added.

He stressed that the Government could successfully foil the enemies’ plot to cause famine and economic hardship in the country.

Referring to new conditions created for the process of talks with the countries which had frozen Iranian assets due to the US pressure, the president expressed hope that the conditions would lead to stability in the forex market.

The former US President Donald Trump withdrew unilaterally from the July 2015 nuclear deal in May 2018 and re-imposed sanctions lifted by the UN Security Council Resolution 2231.

Last week, Hassan Rouhani has defended his administration’s deal with the International Atomic Energy Agency after conservatives in parliament called for the judiciary to open a legal case against the president.

Rouhani said that the deal with the IAEA was “artful” in that it fully implemented parliament’s bill restricting IAEA access without opening Iran to accusations of not cooperating with the nuclear watchdog. He accused anyone of “distorting” Iran’s accomplishment in this deal of aiding Iran’s enemies.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned members of the Assembly of Experts about divisions. While he publicly backed the legislation, referring to it as a “good bill,” he said of the parliament’s disagreements with the administration, “These differences are solvable and the two sides must cooperate to resolve them. The differences must not widen, which would show division”
