Iranian president slams US vote extending sanctions on Tehran

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said that Iran will give a strong response to the US if it violates the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA/nuclear deal).


“We believe that the recent vote by the US Congress is in contradiction with the JCPOA and it breaches the deal,” IRNA news agency quoted President Rouhani as saying this morning.

He urged President Barack Obama to turn down the recent vote extending the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) for 10 more years.

President Rouhani added that all reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) prove that Iran has fulfilled its commitments regarding the last year’s landmark nuclear deal reached between the Islamic Republic and the P5+1 group of countries.

The JCPOA is an international document endorsed by the Security Council of the United Nations and Iran believes that the proper implementation of the nuclear deal would be a considerable achievement for the international community and the participants of the deal.

He further touched upon Iran’s role in protecting security and stability in the region saying that collaboration with Iran will contribute to re-establishing security in the region.

The US lawmakers have recently reauthorized the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA), which was first introduced in 1996 to punish investments in Iran's energy industry based on accusations that Tehran was pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

While Barack Obama is expected to approve the legislation on the renewal of sanctions against Iran for the next 10 years, Iranian leaders have sharply criticized the motion describing it as a breach of the last year’s landmark nuclear deal.

Japanese Militarism : Japan, Between Love And Resentment

A book entitled Japanese Militarism and Its War Crimes in Asia Pacific Region (Hendrajit, ed) was recently sent to me, by the publisher, The Global Future Institute. No doubt, this book made me re-think and recollect my trip to Japan in 1996. At that time, I was warmly received by Japanese families who became my host, invited to travel to various places, and bought souvenirs. The psycological effect of my short visit is that it is hard to imagine that the Japanese people were cruel ones, perpetrators of the massacre of our ancestors, raping Indonesian girls, making them as prostitutes and enslaving our grandfathers to work on various projects.
