Iranian President Hassan Rowhani showed up the U.S. president by striking a resolute and diplomatic tone that took aim at “the Zionist pressure groups,” Adel said.

“Mr. Rowhani wanted to convey this point to the Americans in a diplomatic tone that who is making the decisions in the U.S., the Zionist pressure groups or the American statesmen,” Adel said.

Rowhani “persists in restoring Iran’s nuclear rights and may not give up even an iota of the Iranian nation’s right” despite his public rhetoric of reconciliation, Adel said.
