Rouhani Defends Iranian Military Presence in Syria, Raises New Doubts Over Nuclear Deal, During Call With Macron

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday repeated the Tehran regime’s warning that it was prepared to quit the 2015 nuclear deal. During a telephone conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron, Rouhani also defended Iran’s growing military presence in Syria, claiming that the Islamic Republic was engaged in “fighting terrorism.”

“We should not allow such a great achievement of diplomacy to be destroyed by unilateral measures and non-commitment of others,” Rouhani was reported as saying, in a reference to President Donald Trump’s decision in May to withdraw the US from the JCPOA — the technical name for the Iran nuclear deal announced in Vienna in July 2015.

Indicating Iran’s concern at the revival of tough, US-led sanctions, Rouhani added, “If Iran cannot make use of the advantages envisioned in the agreement, staying in the deal will practically be impossible.”

Macron‘s office said the French president had told Rouhani that France remained committed to the nuclear deal, but Tehran needed to fully comply with its commitments.
