Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday said, Iran is ready for “just” negotiations but not if they mean surrender, without mentioning what talks he had in mind. 

Rouhani referred to possible negotiations with the United States. US President Donald Trump withdrew from a landmark 2015 nuclear deal with Iran last year but has said he is willing to hold talks with the Islamic Republic.

“As long as I have the responsibility for the executive duties of the country, we are completely ready for just, legal and honest negotiations to solve the problems,” stated his official website

“But at the same time we are not ready to sit at the table of surrender under the name of negotiations.”
