Here are some key points taken away from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s exclusive interview with NBC’s Lester Holt.
- Accused the U.S. of adopting hostile stance toward Iran
- Portrayed U.S. as diplomatically isolated over its withdraw from the nuclear agreement.
- Calls U.S threat to shut down Iranian oil exports an empty promise
- Refused to rule out threats to close off Strait of Hormuz to oil shipments.
Edge of Humanity Magazine’s Prediction: As stated in a previous article, Edge of Humanity Magazine stands by the statement that with or without an agreement, Iran will obtain nuclear weapons. Further, Iran has tremendous economic problems. The population is becoming very unhappy. Iran is a hot pot, and the mullahs are up to their eyeballs, trying to keep a lid on social unrest in the country.
