Hassan Rowhani, former Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council and ex-nuclear negotiator, said that “Iran is not meant not to have no relations with the United States until Judgment Day. This kind of relationship must change under the right circumstances and while preserving our national interests.” Rowhani maintained, “At the moment, Iran and the United States have hostile relations, and the continuation of this trend is not right for Iran, The Unites States and the region. We should gradually harness this hostility and then reduce it to tense relations and then move towards putting tension aside.” However, he added that the path to negotiations with the United States would only be cleared if “red lines” are observed. Rowhani is affiliated with former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, who is still undecided on whether to join the presidential race.
