Original Title: Iranian President Has Confidence in the New US Government's Return to the Iran Nuclear Agreement

  Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on the 17th that he is confident that the new government led by US President-elect Joseph Biden will return to the comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue and lift sanctions on Iran.

  Rouhani said: “There is no doubt that the three-year resistance of the Iranian people will persuade the new US government to fulfill its (Iranian nuclear agreement) commitments and lift the sanctions.”

  Iran reached an Iran nuclear agreement with the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China, and Germany in 2015, promising to limit its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of sanctions by the United Nations, the United States and the European Union.

The administration of US President Donald Trump withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement in May 2018 and resumed and added sanctions against Iran.

  Biden is scheduled to take office as President of the United States on January 20 next year.

During the election campaign, he promised to renegotiate the terms of the Iran nuclear agreement and return the United States to the Iran nuclear agreement after winning the election.

Agence France-Presse reported that Rouhani expects the Biden administration to return to the Iran nuclear agreement and promised that once parties outside the Iranian nuclear agreement comply with their commitments, Iran will resume the full implementation of the agreement.

  In response to the U.S. unilaterally withdrawing from the Iran nuclear agreement and "extreme pressure" on Iran, Iran has suspended the implementation of some of the terms of the agreement in stages since May last year.
