Obama’s Message To Iran On Diplomatic Deal


Hello! To everyone celebrating Nowruz—across
the United States and in countries around the world—Nowruz Mubarak. For thousands of years, this has been a time
to gather with family and friends and welcome a new spring and a new year. Last week, my
wife Michelle helped mark Nowruz here at the White House. It was a celebration of the vibrant
cultures, food, music and friendship of our many diaspora communities who make extraordinary
contributions every day here in the United States. We even created our own Haft Seen,
representing our hopes for the new year. This year, that includes our hopes for progress
between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the international community, including the United
States. So I want to take this opportunity once again to speak directly to the people
and leaders of Iran. As you gather around the Nowruz table—from Tehran to Shiraz to
Tabriz, from the coasts of the Caspian Sea to the Persian Gulf—you’re giving thanks
for your blessings and looking ahead to the future. This year, we have the best opportunity in
decades to pursue a different future between our countries. Just over a year ago, we reached
an initial understanding regarding Iran’s nuclear program. And both sides have kept
our commitments. Iran has halted progress on its nuclear program and even rolled it
back in some areas. The international community, including the United States, has provided
Iran with some relief from sanctions. Now, our diplomats—and our scientists—are engaged
in negotiations in the hopes of finding a comprehensive solution that resolves the world’s
concerns with Iran’s nuclear program. The days and weeks ahead will be critical.
Our negotiations have made progress, but gaps remain. And there are people, in both our
countries and beyond, who oppose a diplomatic resolution. My message to you—the people
of Iran—is that, together, we have to speak up for the future we seek. As I have said many times before, I believe
that our countries should be able to resolve this issue peacefully, with diplomacy. Iran’s
Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear
weapons, and President Rouhani has said that Iran would never develop a nuclear weapon.
Together with the international community, the United States has said that Iran should
have access to peaceful nuclear energy, consistent with Iran’s international obligations. So
there is a way for Iran—if it is willing to take meaningful, verifiable steps—to
assure the world that its nuclear program is, in fact, for peaceful purposes only. In this sense, Iran’s leaders have a choice
between two paths. If they cannot agree to a reasonable deal, they will keep Iran on
the path it’s on today—a path that has isolated Iran, and the Iranian people, from
so much of the world, caused so much hardship for Iranian families, and deprived so many
young Iranians of the jobs and opportunities they deserve. On the other hand, if Iran’s leaders can
agree to a reasonable deal, it can lead to a better path—the path of greater opportunities
for the Iranian people. More trade and ties with the world. More foreign investment and
jobs, including for young Iranians. More cultural exchanges and chances for Iranian students
to travel abroad. More partnerships in areas like science and technology and innovation.
In other words, a nuclear deal now can help open the door to a brighter future for you—the
Iranian people, who, as heirs to a great civilization, have so much to give to the world. This is what’s at stake today. And this
moment may not come again soon. I believe that our nations have an historic opportunity
to resolve this issue peacefully—an opportunity we should not miss. As the poet Hafez wrote,
“It is early spring. Try to be joyful in your heart. For many a flower will bloom while
you will be in clay.” For decades, our nations have been separated
by mistrust and fear. Now it is early spring. We have a chance—a chance—to make progress
that will benefit our countries, and the world, for many years to come. Now it is up to all
of us, Iranians and Americans, to seize this moment and the possibilities that can bloom
in this new season. Thank you, and Nowruzetan Pirooz.

  1. Please name all the contributions you mention that Moooslems make to this country. Quick now – and don't leave anything out. 

  2. Thank you Mr. President.
    As you said Mr. President this is a historical opportunity for both, Iranians and Americans to start new relationship that were hoped for during last 40 years.
    This is the best that could be done for all Americans and Iranians that are looking forward to have a friendly relationship.
    Iranians love Americans and will be the best supporter of Americans in time needed and Iranians wish all Americans to support them against Evil planes of our common enemies ISIS and ISIS supporters as well.
    No U.S. president had a chance to do what you are done Mr. President  but you did it and we love you for saving lives of innocent Americans and Iranians.
    We know that you will pay a heavy price for what you did and you will be facing international Zionist that was planning to stop friendly relationship between Iranians and Americans by all costs. 

  3. Thank you Mr. President!
    You have been trying your best to make the world to the better, despite the huge difficulties, ignorance and the desire for more war. You give hope to the hopeless, and give the massage to the young people to not give up for peace.
    Maybe, in future, when the dark power of fear has diminished a bit, the humanity can put her focus on more severe problems, such as to take better care of our home, Mother nature. Thank you Sir for coming into this world to make a difference by giving us hope.

  4. The quran says it therefore it is true!!
    Muslims are liars to western people because they have to disguise their Goal to submit the whole world under Islam!!
    Barak you stupid Muslim stand to your belief and stop to lie to the world!!

  5. All hail Obama, our conman, liar in chief
    What part of "NO FOREIGN ENTANGLEMENTS" from your constitutional studies did you not understand.
    there will never b an end to the war on terror until the US stops terrorizing the world. also, ISIS is funded through the pentagon and the CIA in the same manner that they funded al qaeda. Isis is just the new bad guy created by the US to keep boots on the ground in the middle east and consolidate power for organizations like the Builder berg group. get ready for WW3.
