Rouhani to Merkel: Any N-Deal Must End in Lifting Sanctions


The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani asserted during a telephone conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday night that any nuclear deal must end in lifting the sanctions against Tehran.

Rouhani discussed with Merkel the latest situation with regards to the ongoing nuclear talks in Lausanne, Switzerland.

“We are arrived at sensitive times. Iran has shown enough flexibility in the negotiations and it is the turn of the other party to take the final steps now,” Rouhani told Merkel.

Germany is part of the nuclear talks between Iran and P5+1.

Rouhani also stressed in his phone call with Merkel that any deal should result in lifting of the sanctions because, he said, “the main aim of the deal is to forge trust between the two sides.”

The Iranian president also noted: “We have always been after a win-win deal which would serve the interests of all the parties.”
