Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi charged hard this Wednesday against USA during his speech at the UN General Assembly, in which he assured that the “hegemony” of Washington is ending and will be replaced by “a new order”.
“The United States cannot accept that certain countries have the right to stand and continue to confuse militarism with security,” said Raisi, who assured that Washington’s “maximum pressure” policy against his country is failing.
The Iranian leader accused Washington of destabilizing the Middle East and supporting terrorist groups in that region and always pursuing its interests “at the expense of other countries.”
Justice for Qasem Soleimani
In addition, he recalled the assassination by the United States of the commander of the Revolutionary Guard, Qasem Soleimaniwhich took place in 2020, under the Administration of Donald Trump, and ensured that your country will seek justice in the courts.
Regarding the negotiations to save the nuclear deal 2015, Iranian leader accused the US of having “trampled” the pact and considered it essential to obtain “guarantees” that this time the agreement will be fulfilled.
Iran has been negotiating for 17 months with Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Russia, China and, indirectly, with the United States, the restoration of the 2015 nuclear agreement, which limited the Iranian nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of sanctions and was abandoned in 2018 by Trumpthen American president.
Raisi assured that the policy of “maximum pressure” against his country promoted by Trump is failing and highlighted the “flexibility” that Tehran is showing in the current talks, although made clear his mistrust of Washington.
After a consensus seemed close in August to revive the pact, discussions now seem locked, amid new demands from Tehran. Raisi insisted that Iran “does not seek to build or obtain nuclear weapons” and criticized the fact that, while the country is responsible for 2% of atomic activity worldwide, it is subject to 35% of international inspections.
