‘Rouhani should throw the ball in Trump’s court’

September 16, 2018

TEHRAN – A senior political analyst believes President Hassan Rouhani should throw the ball in Donald Trump’s court by attending the UN Security Council’s meeting to denounce the U.S. government for violating international agreements.

“When a topic is raised about a country in the Security Council, the representative of that country can attend and explain the reasons,” said Davoud Hermidas-Bavand, professor of political science and international law, ISNA reported on Saturday.

Trump’s objective is to portray Iran as a regional threat, Hermidas-Bavand said, urging Rouhani to defend Iran’s rights in the face of U.S. illegal withdrawal from the nuclear agreement and its restoration of sanctions against Tehran.
