Hassan Rouhani: We’re talking with ‘the major powers,’ not with you

Iran President Hassan Rouhani

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani sent a scathing message to members of Congress, telling them in comments made to state-run media: Back off the nuclear negotiations, because we’re not talking to you.

His remarks came in response to a congressional move to force President Obama to send any nuclear deal forged with Tehran to Congress for final approval.

He said, the New York Times reported: “I declare here that whatever the U.S. Senate says and what the House of Representatives and radicals in America are after, what the mercenaries in the region say, is not related to our nation and the government. We request cooperation for cooperation, good will for good will, respect for respect.”
