President Rouhani expressed “hope that the next [U.S.] administration will explicitly condemn Trump’­s policies against Iran and make up for its anti-human rights and terrorist acts… in its first steps”, adding that Iranian policy “is commitment for commitment, action for action, reduction of tension for reduction of tension, respect for respect and international commitments for international commitments. If there is such a will in the coming American administration, I think it is very easy to settle the problems”. Rouhani also suggested that “Iran and the U.S. can both decide and announce that they will return to the terms of 20 January 2017, and this can be a great solution to many issues and problems, and completely change the course and conditions, and then we can continue taking the next steps on different issues”.
