He can’t get back the billions Obama showered on this rogue state. But he can do a great deal to stop this rogue state from carrying out its genocidal plans.

Hassan Rouhani,

“Rouhani: Trump cannot reverse nuclear deal,” al-Arabiya, November 9, 2016:

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said there was “no possibility” of its nuclear deal with world powers being overturned by US president-elect Donald Trump despite his threat to rip it up.

“Iran’s understanding in the nuclear deal was that the accord was not concluded with one country or government but was approved by a resolution of the UN Security Council and there is no possibility that it can be changed by a single government,” Rouhani told his cabinet, according to state television.

Last year’s accord with world powers saw international sanctions on Iran lifted in exchange for guarantees that it would not pursue a nuclear weapons capability.

During the election campaign, Trump described the deal as “disastrous” and said it would be his “number one priority” to dismantle it.

Rouhani, a moderate who has pushed for closer ties with the West, said the United States’ standing in the world had been weakened due to its “wrong policies”.

“The United States no longer has the capacity to create Iranophobia and to create a consensus against Iran,” he said.

“The constructive engagement policies of Iran towards the world, and the fact that international sanctions have been lifted, have placed the Iranian economy on a road where there is no possibility of going backwards.”

Meanwhile, Iran’s foreign minister called Wednesday on Trump to stick to international agreements regarding the nuclear deal with Tehran.

“Every US president has to understand the realities of today’s world. The most important thing is that the future US president stick to agreements, to engagements undertaken,” Mohammad Javad Zarif said in Romania.

Tehran insists its nuclear program is peaceful and has so far met its obligations under the deal, but supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said he would happily “burn” the agreement if Trump decides to tear it up.

Some Iranians believe the US president-elect will not make good on his threat.

“The Trump of the campaign is different to Trump the president,” said Allaeddine Borujerdi, chairman of parliament’s foreign affairs committee.

“It is natural that the American president is constrained by international rules and must apply them, notably on the nuclear deal,” the ISNA news agency quoted him as saying.

Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation said it was prepared for any eventuality.

“We have defined our nuclear programin such a way that we can continue in any situation,” spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi told the state broadcaster….
