TEHRAN, August 5 (Itar-Tass) - Negotiations on equal terms, the building of mutual trust and respect, as well as reducing hostilities - such is a way to interact with Iran. This statement was made by new President of the Islamic Republic Hassan Rouhani at his inauguration ceremony on Sunday.
“The only path to interact with Iran is through negotiations on equal grounds, reciprocal trust-building, mutual respect and reducing hostilities," said Rouhani. He added that it is possible to move towards progress and improve the quality of relationship based on equal conduct of the parties.
Rouhani said the West has to change its approach.
“If you want a proper answer, do not speak with Iran with the language of sanctions but with the language of respect,” he said. Iran would “not surrender to sanctions, nor be threatened with war,” the president stressed.
