Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday hit back at US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for demanding that Iran behave like “a normal nation” as a pre-requisite for possible nuclear talks. The remarks came in a meeting with university professors and doctors in Tehran.
“The other side that left the negotiating table and breached a treaty should return to normal state. Until then, we do not have a choice but resistance,” said the Iranian President responding to Washington’s offer to hold talks with Tehran without pre-conditions.
“The day when the enemy realises it has been doing the wrong thing and backs up, then there will be many ways [for negotiations],” added Rouhani.
Tensions have been rising between the US and Iran in recent weeks, since Tehran announced it would partially withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), on May 8, one year after the United States withdrew and re-imposed sanctions on Iran.

Hegemony or Survival: America’s Quest for Global Dominance
By Noam Chomsky
Noam Chomsky, the world’s foremost intellectual activist, presents an irrefutable analysis of America’s pursuit of total domination and the catastrophic consequences that are sure to follow.
From the funding of repressive regimes to the current ‘war on terror’, from the toppling of governments opposing its beliefs to the invasion of Iraq, America pursues its global strategy no matter what the cost. With the rigour and insight that have made him our most important unraveller of accredited lies, Noam Chomsky reveals the truth and the true motives behind America’s quest for dominance – and seeks also to show how the world may yet step back from the brink.
