Lift Sanctions All at Once

TEHRAN March 02(Shana)--President Hassan Rouhani has reaffirmed Iran’s commitment to all its nuclear obligations, stressing that sanctions against the Islamic Republic must be lifted “all at once.”

“The basis of nuclear negotiations is [making] efforts to reach common views and mutual confidence and we believe that all sanctions should be lifted all at once,” Rouhani said in a meeting with Italy’s Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni in Tehran on Sunday.

He added that the sanctions have even harmed the 28-nation European Union.

“Iran has always honored its commitments and it is currently clear to everyone that Iran is a completely serious side in the talks,” Rouhani said.

He said there is no option but negotiations to settle the outstanding issues about the Iranian nuclear program.

Iran and the P5+1 global powers  -- Britain, France, China, Russia, and the United States plus Germany – are making attempts to narrow their differences on the outstanding issues related to Tehran's nuclear program ahead of a July 1 deadline for reaching a comprehensive deal.

The scale of Iran’s uranium enrichment and the timetable for the removal of anti-Iran sanctions are seen as the major stumbling blocks in the talks.
