"Our diplomats are negotiating in Vienna right now and we do not care when the enemy comes to his senses and respect the law, but we are sure that for the United States and the other countries in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), there is no other way but to fully comply with the UN Resolution 2231 and the JCPOA, if they do so, we will immediately return to all of our obligations after the verification," he noted.

"Today, regarding the concerns of the United States and Europe over Iran's 60 percent enrichment, some say that Iran wants to reach 90 percent, is not true; You think that we are paving the way for the production of a nuclear bomb, but it is wrong," Rouhani concluded.
