Speaking at a government meeting on Wednesday, Rouhani expressed regret that certain regional Arab countries have kept silent on Israel's atrocities, while certain Muslim states have simply chosen to turn a blind eye and some others have even stated that the regime "legitimately defended itself".

He condemned the USA move to relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds saying the illegal move provoked outrage among the Palestinians and upset the Islamic states.

He went on to say that "muslims around the world consider Al Quds and Al-Aqsa Mosque their first qibla".

The people of Palestine will not tolerate such oppressions, he said, adding, "Palestinians have resisted for 70 years and will continue to do so until their legitimate rights are secured. The actions and deeds of the Zionist Regime have always been aggression, tyranny and killing of the innocent and in the recent days, these actions are more evident".

"The Zionist regime and the United States assume that by exercising more pressure, they can deny the Palestinian nation its legitimate right or can separate the world's Muslims from their [holy] land of al-Quds", the president said.


The US, not Iran violated the global laws, its commitments under the deal and United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231, Rouhani said.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday his country will remain in an worldwide deal on Tehran's nuclear development if it fully benefits from the pact.

Iran said it will not continue the implementation of the JCPOA without receiving enough ‎guarantees from three European countries, including the UK, France, and Germany.

"They think they can make the Iranian nation surrender by putting pressures on Iran, by sanctions and even threats of war... Today, the U.S. has violated worldwide regulations and must be put under pressure".

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani called for imposing pressure on the U.S. for violating the nuclear deal reached between Tehran and the six world powers in 2015.
