Iranian President Boasts There’s ‘No Doubt’ Joe Biden Will ‘Bow’ to Iran and Lift Sanctions
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani recently boasted about his country’s prospects now that a new president has been elected in the United States.
The totalitarian ruler said he has “no doubt” that the incoming U.S. administration under Democratic President-elect Joe Biden will “bow” to Iran and rejoin the nuclear deal forged in 2015 when Biden was vice president.
President Donald Trump removed the U.S. from the deal in 2018 and has since adopted a much tougher stance toward Iran, reimposing crippling sanctions lifted under the deal and conducting an airstrike that killed Iranian terrorist military leader Qassem Soleimani.
“I have no doubt that the heroic national resistance of Iran is going to compel the future U.S. government to bow … and the sanctions will be broken,” Rouhani said Thursday in a televised address introducing several infrastructure projects, according to the Washington Post.
Only a day prior, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei also showed some openness to working with Biden if it resulted in the lifting of U.S. sanctions.
“If the sanctions can be lifted in a correct, wise, Iranian-Islamic, and dignified manner, this should be done,” he said during a televised address. “But our main focus should be on neutralizing the sanctions, and the initiative for this is in your hands.
