Iran Responds to Pompeo's 12 Demands

(Iran Daily) Responding to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's May 21 statement of 12 preconditions for Iran to follow, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif presented Iran's demands on Wednesday. "The truth is that all U.S. administrations in the past 70 years should be held accountable for their disregard for international law, and their violations of bilateral and multilateral agreements with Iran." "A short list of the rightful demands of the Iranian people from the U.S. government could include the following: The U.S. government...will end its intervention in Iran's domestic affairs....The United States must abandon its policy of resorting to the threat or use of an option in the conduct of its foreign affairs with or against the Islamic Republic of Iran and other States." "The U.S. government should...rescind previous arbitrary and unlawful financial judgments, it should refrain from executing them in the U.S. and extraterritorially. The U.S. government should openly acknowledge its unwarranted and unlawful actions against the people of Iran over the past decades...take remedial measures to compensate the people of Iran for the damages incurred, and provide verifiable assurances that it will cease and desist from such illegal measures and refrain from ever repeating them." "The United States government must...nullify the cruel and extensive primary and extraterritorial sanctions, rescind hundreds of legislations and executive orders...and compensate the Iranian people for the enormous damages to the Iranian economy and its people....The U.S. government should stop its unlimited and unconditional support for the Zionist regime...and support...the establishment of an independent Palestinian State with Al-Quds al-Sharif as its capital."
