Iran President Hassan Rouhani tells his country that nuclear deal means ‘surrender’ of Western powers

TEHRAN, Iran — President Hassan Rouhani has praised a landmark nuclear deal struck in Geneva as his country’s victory, telling a home crowd it effectively means the “surrender” of Western powers to Iranian demands.

The remarks were part of the moderate Rouhani’s efforts to bring around hard-liners who claim the deal tramples on Iran’s enrichment rights.

Last week, the six-nation group — the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany — and Iran agreed to start implementing the terms of the November deal later this month.

Under the deal, Iran agreed to cap its uranium enrichment in return for some relief from Western economic sanctions.

Speaking Tuesday in the oil-rich province of Khuzestan, Rouhani said the “Geneva deal means the surrender of big powers before the great nation of Iran.”

Great article highlighting some of Iran’s worst human rights abuses. This post comes at a great time to highlight the immense HYPOCRISY of Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif’s youtube video post two days ago. He asked for countries at the next round of nuclear talks to honor Iran’s dignity and give them the respect they deserve. WHAT A JOKE. How does Iran have any dignity when they have the highest per capita execution rate in the world, among MANY other human rights atrocities. Keep this in mind while the newest round of nuclear talks unfold….

Here are the 5 human rights abuses discussed in the article:
