Iran urges next US administration to reconsider inhumane policies

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani advised next American administration to revise its inhumane behavior toward other nations in order to mend the severely-damaged image of the US.

In an address to a meeting of the Economic Coordination Headquarters on Tuesday, Rouhani called on the administration of the next US president to shift the US policies toward other nations in the first step, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Before any measure to mend the United States’ damaged image in the international community, the new US administration must reconsider its inhumane behavior toward other countries,” the Iranian president said.

Speaking during another meeting of the Economic Coordination Headquarters on Sunday, Rouhani said the next US administration has an opportunity to "compensate for its previous mistakes".

"Now there is an opportunity for the future American administration to compensate for its previous mistakes and return to the path of adherence to international commitments," Rouhani said.

US President Donald Trump, who lost Tuesday's election to Democratic challenger Joe Biden, has applied a "maximum pressure" policy and tough sanctions against Iran since his 2018 withdrawal from a landmark nuclear agreement with Tehran.

The reimposed sanctions targeted Iran's vital oil industry and banking ties, among other sectors.

This US "administration's harmful and wrong policy for the past three years was not only condemned by people all around the world, but was also opposed by the people of the US in the recent election," Rouhani said.

He added that the Iranian people's "heroic resistance against the imposed economic war" by the Trump administration "proved that America's maximum pressure policy is doomed to fail."

"Iran favors constructive interaction with the world,” Rouhani said.

Biden has said during his campaign that he plans to embark on a "credible path to return to diplomacy" with Iran, and pledged to rejoin Iran's 2015 nuclear accord with six powers, a deal that was agreed by Washington when he was vice-president under Barack Obama, if Tehran also returns to full compliance.
