Rouhani also referred to the United States’ illegal and unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA, adding, “The Americans invite us for dialogue, and at the same time, are seeking to overthrow the system in Iran, thinking that if they put pressure on the people, they can achieve this goal; but they don’t know that a government that enjoys people’s support will not surrender to threat”.
