Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, said Wednesday that Iran’s nuclear negotiators would never accept a deal with world powers that would curtail the Iranian nation’s “rights” to nuclear power, Al-Manar News – the media outlet of Iranian proxy Hezbollah – report on Wednesday.

Rouhani, touted as a moderate, made these remarks in a speech to a session of his cabinet, according to the report.

Al-Manar claimed that the president said Iran was willing to demonstrate more transparency on its nuclear program, which Iran has long maintained is being built for exclusively peaceful purposes. However, Rouhani added that if the negotiators are seeking to deprive Iran of its “inalienable right” to pursue nuclear technology, the Islamic Republic would reject such an agreement.

The report claims that Rouhani said Iran wants a deal that is beneficial to Iran, but also to the region and the entire world.

Rouhani also claimed that the world appears satisfied with the course of negotiations and progress being made between Iran and the P5+1 nations, and that the outcome of negotiations would help in settling the crises caused by extremism in the region and the entire world.

Rouhani expressed his hope in the meeting that the six world powers negotiating with Iran would come to realize the critical situation in which the Middle East finds itself, and therefore adopt a “reasonable” approach towards Iran’s nuclear program.

Rouhani further noted that only the “occupying regime” in Jerusalem – a reference to the State of Israel – is unhappy with the talks and the progress being made. But he added that the wisdom of the American people and the world would prevent them from being dragged by the “warmongering regime” into violent confrontation with Iran.

Rouhani ended by saying that the p5+1 are well aware that they face one of two options: either sign a deal with Iran, and the earlier the deal is reached the better, or be faced with the possibility of a much speedier development of Iran’s “peaceful” nuclear program.
