World disapproving US strategies: Rouhani says

AHVAZ (IRNA): President Hassan Rouhani said on Friday that no one in world is approving the American policies because the present US officials are not abiding by rule of international laws.

Addressing the local officials in the province of Khuzestan in southwestern country on Friday, President said these people who are in power in the US are warmongers and easily trample upon international code of conducts and rules such as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and the Paris (clime) Agreement.

Recently, the Islamic Republic of Iran won three wining cards at international gatherings and we can refer to the verdict issued by Luxemburg court to unfreeze dlrs 1.7b of Iranian assets.

The US also violated the international rules in relations to Golan Heights and Holy Quads, he said adding that when the US had not withdrawn from the JCPOA, they objected to presence of foreign firms in Iran and now that these companies have left Iran, they ask why they have left the country!

The Islamic Republic of Iran achieved numerous international triumphs such as subsequent verification received by the IAEA on its nuclear program, Rouhani said. ‘We should always walk shoulder to shoulder with Iranian people as they suffered huge economic pressure last year through sacrifice and devotion and this attained under their unity,’ he said.

Rouhani concluded his one-day tour to Khuzestan province and left Ahvaz for Tehran on Friday afternoon.

Rouhani and his entourage arrived in Khuzestan province on Friday to closely examine the province existing capabilities in coping with upcoming floods. Ministers of energy, Agriculture Jihad, Justice, Road and Urban development are accompanying President Rouhani during the visit.

Good management in the province prevented occurrence of any problems resulting to devastating flood in the province. Some 35 villages are in danger of inundated waters to be outpoured from Karkhe and Dez damns.

Devastating flood hit various provinces in Iran in recent days leaving high number of casualties.

Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister in a message referred to US President Donald Trump’s recent choice on Golan Heights, warning Arab and Muslim states against US tricks.

‘Trump’s lawless announcement on ‘Occupied Syrian Golan’ after last year’s on ‘Occupied Al-Quds’ is a sobering reminder for our Arab and Muslim brethren: US & Israel will offer you handshakes, but no matter how much you kowtow, they will still steal your lands. #LetUsUnite,’ Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted on Thursday.

Trump tweeted on Thursday that after 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights. On December 6, 2017, the US President Donald Trump decided to relocate the US diplomatic mission from Tel Aviv to Holy Quds and to recognize Quds as the capital city of the Zionist regime of Israel.

Some 58 Palestinians were killed and thousands of others were injured by the Zionist troops on that day while protesting against the US relocation of embassy from Tel Aviv to Holy Quds.
