The President of Iran said that the safeguard issues against Iran are based on the claims of the Israeli regime, which are basically invalid.

Iran PressAmerica: On Thursday local time, at the beginning of the fourth day of his trip to New York, Seyed Ebrahim Raisi, in a meeting with a group of senior American media executives, while answering their questions, explained his views and positions of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Raisi called the recent positions of the International Atomic Energy Agency regarding Iran's nuclear activities political and non-technical and influenced by Western and Zionist pressures, adding: "Repeating similar claims that have already been investigated and declared groundless by the IAEA is considered to be merely a political excuse to delay the revival of the JCPOA."

The president of Iran stated: "If the safeguard issues related to the past are not resolved once and for all, what guarantee is there that shortly after the agreement, Western countries will not organize actions against Iran based on these claims."

Raisi emphasized: Achieving a logical and fair agreement depends on providing reliable and reassuring guarantees, closing the case of alleged safeguard issues, and permanently lifting sanctions.

In response to a question about Iran's conditions on the nuclear issue, Raisi said: "We once experienced the withdrawal of the United States from the agreement, and therefore we announced that they should provide reliable and reassuring guarantees to prevent the repetition of this experience."

Raisi said: "We have experienced direct negotiation with the US and we found that it is useless. If the Americans are telling the truth and are honest, they should fulfill their obligations."

Iran's president emphasized the government's policy is a balanced view of all countries and stated that for any country that wants to cooperate with the Islamic Republic of Iran, our policy is to interact and cooperate, and also neighboring countries are a top priority.

In response to a question about the stance of the Islamic Republic of Iran regarding the Zionist regime and the solution to the Palestinian issue, Raisi said: "The solution to this problem is not agreements like Camp David, Sharm el-Sheikh or Oslo, because these agreements could not solve the problem of the historical inhabitants of this land and secure their rights."

The President of Iran added: "holding a free election with the participation of all Palestinians, regardless of whether they are Jews, Christians or Muslims, will lead to the establishment of a government that can solve the problems of the Palestinians and secure their rights. 219
