TEHRAN, Dec 23_Iran's President Hassan Rouhani says the United States will have to stop its policy of exerting “maximum pressure” on Iran, stressing that the current conditions that stem from that policy are only temporary.

US will have to end ‘maximum pressure’ on Iran: Present RouhaniTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_Under the current conditions that the United States is imposing unilateral sanctions against [various] nations, we must try to maintain mutual relations and cooperation,” Rouhani said in a meeting with the visiting Indian Minister of External Affairs Subrahmanyam Jaishankar in Tehran on Monday.

“There is no doubt that these conditions are temporary and sooner or later, before or after its [forthcoming] presidential election, America will have to give up [its policy of exerting] maximum pressure on Iran,” Iran's president said.

In May 2018, US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the landmark Iran nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) signed between Tehran and major world powers in 2015, in defiance of global objections and unleashed a “maximum pressure” campaign against Iran, under which it has imposed the “toughest ever” sanctions targeting the Iranian economy in order to force Tehran into submitting to its excessive demands.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said in September that Iran will not engage in negotiations with the United States “at any level,” and that Washington's "maximum pressure" campaign against the Iranian nation has failed to achieve its goals.
