Iran's Rouhani criticizes US 'unilateralism' over nuclear deal

Howard TerryJun 12, 2018

Putin, speaking after the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in the Chinese port city of Qingdao, said Sunday that it was the other member states' decision to skip a scheduled summit in Russian Federation in 2014 and that they are welcome to Russian Federation.

"Once again, nothing concrete was said", Putin said, referring to the G-7 statement. The Kremlin has complained that efforts to organize the meeting seem frozen. "We have to carefully analyse, watch what's going on, and see at what stage and how we can participate in this process and use it, including by the way, to avoid any restrictions in the sphere of worldwide financial activity", Putin said.

Each of the European Union, China and Russian Federation have announced their intention to salvage the nuclear deal and tried to persuade Tehran to stay after the United States exit, but some senior officials in Iran are skeptical of European positions and accuse them of sharing roles with Washington.

Putin said the bloc's new counterterrorism agreement foresees joint drills, exchanging information and conducting coordinated anti-terror action. Juncker added that the European Union is open to beginning a dialogue with Russian Federation, "but in other ways" that do not concern ending the sanctions regime until Moscow's ends its occupation of large parts of eastern Ukraine and the Crimean Peninsula.

Iranian President Rouhani also met Vladimir Putin in a bilateral meeting on Saturday in Qingdao.

The Russian dictator can barely hide his glee, and he is moving to fill the opening that the president has created.

European Union Council President Donald Tusk, British Prime Minister Theresa May, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, US President Donald Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron, European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte gather for the media during the Family photo on the first day of the G7 Summit, on 8 June, 2018 in La Malbaie, Canada.

"Iran has always stood by the nation of Afghanistan over the past four decades and as two neighbouring and brotherly states, the two sides have significant cultural, security and trade commonalities", he was quoted as saying in a report by the President's Website.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday called for increasing the momentum of trade and investment among the members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).

The addition of South Asian rivals India and Pakistan have also raised questions about the group's long-term cohesiveness.

Xinhua quoted Xi as saying that the Iran nuclear deal should continue to be implemented earnestly as it acts to stabilize the peace and stability in the Middle East as well as for the worldwide non-proliferation regime.

Addressing the summit, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, whose country has an observer status in the group, said that Iran would expect other participants in the nuclear deal to provide guarantees that they would honor the agreement.

President Donald Trump announced last month that the United States was leaving the agreement, calling it deeply flawed, and reimposing sanctions that would hit worldwide businesses working in the Islamic republic.
