President Rouhani contended that “Saudi Arabia and the Zionist regime [ie, Israel] were the key factors in influencing the U.S. to withdraw from the JCPOA and mounting pressures against Iran… It should be recorded in history that Iran signed an agreement with six major world powers, and they violated it, but it was not us who violated it, and we are still living up to it”. He further declared that “whenever the U.S. is ready to lift all illegal, unjust and terrorist sanctions, Iran and P5+1 leaders will meet right away, and we have no problem in this regard”.
