Yaghoubi: Hassan Rouhani Should Lead Iran-P5+1 Talks in Future
Before taking office as the new president of Iran, Hassan Rouhani used to serve as a member of the Supreme National Security Council. Under his tutelage, Iranian and European politicians managed to held several rounds of negotiations over Iran’s nuclear case.
According to analysts, Rouhani achieved to help Islamic Republic of Iran to continue nuclear activities in line with international regulations. At the same time, the U.S. government and European Union were satisfied with Iran’s cooperation with IAEA in this regard.
Salahoddin Yaghoubi, an Iranian politician, suggests the new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to lead Iran-P5+1 talks in person. “Rouhani has valuable experiences and knowledge about the P5+1 group. He used to lead negotiations since the first days, and the results were absolutely satisfactory.”
Yaghoubi says the close relations between Rouhani and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is also a positive factor for the new president. “In my opinion, Hassan Rouhani is familiar with the ideas and views of Ayatollah Khamenei. They have made a lot of meetings before, and Rouhani is currently the best politician to lead the negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 group.”
Recently, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei asked the Iranian government to pursue Iran’s nuclear case. At this time, Iran is extremely suffering from devastating sanctions imposed by the U.S. government over the country’s economy.
Tehran has already refused to stop enriching nuclear. On the other side, the Iranian government doesn’t allow representatives of International Atomic Energy Agency to investigate Iran’s hidden nuclear sites such as Natanz and Fordow.
“Iran can take advantage of nuclear energy only by employing better policies. Hassan Rouhani needs to make Western governments sure about the clarity of Iran’s nuclear activities. I strongly believe that Rouhani can achieve this goal, because he has succeeded to establish positive relations with European politicians.” Salahoddin Yaghoubi said in an interview with the Herald Boy on Wednesday.
