3. SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Ebrahim Raisi, President, Iran:
“The proper pursuit of justice in the face of a crime that the American president admitted, putting his signature on, will not be abandoned. We will seek through a fair tribunal to bring justice to those who martyred our beloved General Suleimani.”

5. SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Ebrahim Raisi, President, Iran:
“The region has not seen previously a savage occupying power such as the Zionist regime in its midst in the past. The killing of children and women are present in the dark report card of the Zionist regime. It has managed to form the biggest prison in the world in Gaza.”

7. SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Ebrahim Raisi, President, Iran:
“The Islamic Republic of Iran with goodwill accepted an agreement in 2015. And in the first phase, we did live up to all of our commitments without any exceptions. But the result of that was the trampling upon by America on that agreement. And as themselves said in so many words, there were unprecedented oppressive sanctions in history. Sanctions are a punishment on the people of Iran for being freedom seekers. Weapons of mass destruction is what these sanctions are.”

9. SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Ebrahim Raisi, President, Iran:
“It was America that left and trampled upon the agreement, not Iran. The International Atomic Energy Agency issued 15 different reports stating precisely that Iran had remained fully committed to all of our commitments.”

11. SOUNDBITE (Farsi) Ebrahim Raisi, President, Iran:
“We gave ample opportunities for those who trampled upon and left this agreement to return to it. We have been extremely flexible and had it not been for our flexibility, the negotiations have stopped in the very first few days. The logic of negotiations of Iran is a just analysis of what is going on. Our wish is only one thing: commitment, observance of commitments.”

STORYLINE:

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi told the General Assembly his country is serious about reviving a deal on its nuclear program and asked for “only one thing: commitment, observance of commitments.”

Addressing Member States today (21 Sep), Raisi said that Iran “gave ample opportunities for those who trampled upon and left this agreement to return to it.”

“We have been extremely flexible and had it not been for our flexibility, the negotiations have stopped in the very first few days. The logic of negotiations of Iran is a just analysis of what is going on,” said the Head of State.

According to Raisi, “it was America that left and trampled upon the agreement, not Iran.”

Iran’s President also said that “the International Atomic Energy Agency issued 15 different reports stating precisely that Iran had remained fully committed to all of our commitments.”

Raisi said his country accepted the agreement, in 2015, with “goodwill” and, in a first phase, live up to all of its commitments without any exceptions.”

The result, said the Head of State, were sanctions as “a punishment on the people of Iran for being freedom seekers.”

“Weapons of mass destruction is what these sanctions are,” added Raisi.

Iran’s President also held up the picture of the former commander of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guards Corps, Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, who was assassinated by the United States in Iraq in 2020.

Raisi said that “the proper pursuit of justice in the face of a crime that the American president admitted, putting his signature on, will not be abandoned.”

According to him, Iran “will seek through a fair tribunal to bring justice to those who martyred our beloved General Suleimani.”

The Iranian Head of State also mentioned Israel, saying that “the region has not seen previously a savage occupying power such as the Zionist regime in its midst in the past.”

Raisi added that “the killing of children and women are present in the dark report card of the Zionist regime” and Israel has also “managed to form the biggest prison in the world in Gaza.”
