Rouhani: Sanctions will be lifted soon

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani (pictured right) stated on Wednesday that sanctions on the country will be lifted soon "if the Iranian people are united."

Speaking at a cabinet meeting, Rouhani noted that "sanctions have been broken" and that the path to ending sanctions is "smoother," adding that he hopes "the other side will bow to the law as soon as possible." He also stated that Iran acknowledges "there was no other way but to enforce international law and regulations" and that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) must be "fully implemented" with the rights of the Iranian people "fully achieved."

Previously, Iran stated that the JCPOA talks in Vienna were going well, while the United States gave a more cautious assessment of the talks saying they were in an "uncertain place."
