Rouhani: Japan wants to continue purchasing Iranian oil

Dear Reader, As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. Nevertheless, traditional business models are no longer sustainable and high-quality publications, like ours, are being forced to look for new ways to keep going. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analysis from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday that Japan wanted to continue buying Iran’s oil which has been sanctioned by the United states. Rouhani praised as successful his meeting with visiting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, during which he said economic ties and Iran’s commitment to a 2015 nuclear deal with major powers were discussed. “Iran will remain committed to the deal, which is important for security of the region and the world. Tehran and Tokyo both oppose nuclear weapons … Iran will never initiate a war but will give a crushing response to any egression,” Rouhani told a joint news conference with Abe. Abe, the first Japanese leader to visit Iran since its 1979 Islamic Revolution, landed in Tehran as a brewing confrontation between Iran and the United States stokes fear of another military conflict in the crisis-ridden Middle East.  Now is the time to join the news event of the year – The Jerusalem Post Annual Conference!
