Sanctions Against Iran illegal: Rouhani


In an exclusive interview with CNN news network on Wednesday on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, Rouhani said anti-Iran sanctions are illegal and contravene international laws.

Rouhani’s remarks come as fifty-nine US Senators have signed up to a bill that would impose more sanctions on Iran if voted on. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) has reportedly been working to convince more Senators to back the draft resolution.

President Rouhani further stated, “We are not afraid of threats and the language of threats is ineffective when it comes to Iran. The language they need to choose should be a legal one, a respectful tone of voice when addressing the Iranian people. It benefits our region and the interests of other countries.”

The sanctions against Iran are illegal. This is why President Obama uses terms like 'international obligations' when referring to Iran's legal nuclear program rather that using terms like violations of International Law'. It is the USA that is in violation of International Law with their sanctions program.
