Il presidente Hassan Rouhani ha dichiarato oggi che la repubblica islamica dell’Iran avrebbe continuato con il suo programma nucleare per scopi civili. In un discorso al World Economic Forum di Davos, Rouhani ha detto che il suo paese non avrebbe nessuna intenzione di rinunciare al suo diritto di esercitare una tecnologia pacifica.
The President reiterated Iranˈs desire to engage with its international partners.
Rouhani, the architect of brokering a deal to end a decade-long confrontation with the western governments, over the national nuclear program in November said it was part of his drive to rapprochement with the western governments and improve relations with the countryˈs neighbors.
ˈWhat we have achieved is not merely a temporary agreement but a prelude to future agreement and engagement,ˈ Rouhani said.
In Thursdayˈs speech, he said he would push for greater engagement with the world as part of his drive to make the Iranian economy one of the top 10 within the next three decades.
ˈI view Iranˈs economy as the most congruent, capable and closest to that of successful emerging economies, and I see Iranˈs place alongside them in the future.ˈ
Rouhani said the country intended to reopen trade and industrial and economic relations with its neighbors.
In response to a question from World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab on whether that included all countries, Rouhani said: ˈAll countries that Iran has officially recognized are inside the circle.ˈ
ˈEast and West, North and South — there are no exceptions.ˈ
Iran does not recognize Israel and believes it is an occupying and illegitimate entity.
Syria hot topic at day one of Davos
He said Iran ˈbelieves that everyone, all of us, should try our best to put a stop to the bloodshed in Syria, and later push terrorists out of Syria.ˈ
Rouhani said the next step would be to ˈpave the way for the opposition to sit around a table with the Syrian governmentˈ and for free and fair elections to be held.
