Nuclear weapons ‘must be destroyed,’ says Iranian President (VIDEO)

In an interview with Christiane Amanpour on Monday, President Rouhani discussed the possibilities that US President Donald Trump could come through on a campaign promise to shred the nuclear agreement negotiated under the Obama administration.

“Our position has been very clear and remains clear vis-a-vis nuclear weapons. We are against any type of weapons of mass destruction as well as nuclear weapons, and we believe that they must be destroyed around the world.”

He noted that an arms race was unacceptable for Iran, in any region.

Rouhani stressed,

“The position and the actions of the United States as well as other nations against North Korea have not been very positive, and I don’t think there is a military solution to this. Only diplomacy is the tool that will resolve this problem permanently.”

On September 3, North Korea announced that it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb that could be loaded into an intercontinental ballistic missile, which became Pyongyang’s sixth nuclear test.

In light of these developments from North Korea, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted its toughest resolution against North Korea that restricted oil exports to Pyongyang, banning exports of textiles to the country, as well as restricting the country’s access to gasoline. However, North Korea has not halted its missile and nuclear program, conducting another missile test last Friday.

In that same interview with CNN, Rouhani warned that there would be a ‘high cost’ if the US exited the nuclear deal with Iran.

What do they know, they haven’t been the aggressors in a war since 1775 or there abouts. But us, the bastion of peace and love and bringing democracy to the world, well here is some of it: *Between 1898 and 1934 the Marines invaded: Cuba 4 times; Nicaragua 5 times; Honduras 7 times; the Dominican Republic 4 times; Haiti twice; Guatemala once; Panama twice; Mexico 3 times; and Colombia 4 times. All done for the corporations to get natural resorces and farm land for them. *Eisenhower murdered over one million innocent Germans in open field prison camps, AFTER the war’s… Read more »

The Neoconservatives do not respect leaders and countries that present themselves as weak and feeble.

Bravado statements like that are really meaningless as you or I don’t have the power nor influence in the halls of congress, etc.

What one can do is act locally, attend meetings where decisions on one’s life are being made from the PTA to city and county council meetings, anything on land and water use and of course anything sold as “sestainability” IE: Agenda 21 and 2030.

Rex drabble Switching out of US$s for trade is difficult in the way you suggest. Majority of the world’s countries do not want to hold (example) the Russian Rouble Even Putin’s children live outside Russia in Switzerland and the EU and hold their many Billions of assets in non Russian Roubles. The situation is similar amongst the majority of Putin’s corrupt Kosher cabal of Billionaires who love the US$s as many US$ Trillions have been and continue to be siphoned offshore due to Russian corruption. Trade in Gold is difficult as it would have to be physically moved backwards and… Read more »

The solution for a country is to present itself as strong, assertive and show ability to defend itself or at least some of these qualities.

Leaders and countries that have done this recently are Kim – North Korea and Assad – Syria by standing up against the US under all odds.

Both Rouhani – Iran and Putin – Russia show themselves to be weak and feeble.

Kim knows how to handle countries that seek destruction of his people and nation.

Every single piece of recent reporting of Kim – NK weapons development and testing has been reported in a respectable way on both BBC TV and Sky News.

Even clowns like Boris and May are careful with their words when speaking about NK.

The same cannot be said of leaders and countries that present themselves as weak and feeble.
