US could impose “neither negotiations nor war” on the Islamic Republic, says Iranian President

The United States couldn’t impose “negotiations or war” on the Islamic Republic, said Iranian President in a video message to the United Nations General Assembly amid the escalating tension between the long time foes over Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world’s major powers.

During his address to the U.N. General Assembly on September 22, Hassan Rouhani said, “Iran is not a bargaining chip in U.S. elections and domestic policy … Any U.S. administration after the upcoming (U.S.) elections will have no choice but to surrender to the resilience of the Iranian nation.”

Meanwhile, Iran has refused to hold talks with the United States unless the latter lifts sanctions on Tehran and returns to the original deal.

It must be recalled that US President Donald Trump in his address to the U.N. on September 22 said, “We withdrew from the terrible Iran nuclear deal and imposed crippling sanctions on the world’s leading state sponsor of terror.”
