The Iranian leadership will not change its policy course unless the United States removes its sanctions on Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday. 

“Iran will continue reducing its commitments under the nuclear deal unless US sanctions are removed,” he said. “Talks with the US will only become possible if the sanctions are lifted. Otherwise, nothing will change,” the Iranian president added.

Rouhani pointed out that “Iran never sought to own nuclear weapons.”

“As for the nuclear deal, we will continue interacting with other participants,” he said.
