Rouhani: US can lift Iran sanctions in one hour if there is will

President Hassan Rouhani has dismissed as “lies” the US’s claims that it needs a few months to lift the anti-Iran sanctions and return to compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal since those things can happen through “a single decree and in one hour.”

“The Americans lie when they say a return to their commitments and the lifting of the sanctions will take 2 to 3 months... It can be done with one decree and in one hour. All it needs is the will to do so, and if there is a serious resolve, the US can return to all its obligations in a single day, and we can also return to all our commitments,” he told a cabinet meeting in Tehran on Wednesday.

“Mere slogans and interviews will not work,” said Rouhani. “The Americans must act and do everything in their power” to facilitate the revival of the nuclear deal they abandoned in 2018 in defiance of international law.

President Rouhani said Tehran has been waiting for the removal of Washington’s sanctions since four months ago, when the Parliament adopted a law intending to counteract the unilateral sanctions imposed on Iran following withdrawal from the nuclear deal, officially named the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
