Speaking after the meeting of the heads of the three ruling branches on Saturday, the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said “the current policy of the United States in imposing sanctions on Iran, is of blind nature, targeting Iranian nation.”
Stating that the path of resistance, steadfastness, planning and coordination with people and interaction with allies will thwart conspiracies of the enemies, Rouhani described US sanctions as blind and targeting the people of Iran.
He added “regarding energy, transportation, basic commodities and production, our country will face no problems and we have always been victorious when the government and the people have stood together.”
“Fortunately, regarding the unlawful actions of the United States, the honorable authorities and the government have had good contacts with different European countries, China, Russia and neighboring and important countries in Asia and the majority of them to whom protecting their independence and sovereignty is important have a positive answer, saying that they will not abide by US’ internal laws.”
He also said “we are very hopeful that the current trend of economic cooperation of Iran with the world continue like the past, and of course we have planned for areas that we might face problems.”
President then addressed the Iranian nation, saying “the government has considered providing the foreign currency required for people’s basic needs and is paying this amount of foreign currency to the Central Bank.”
“The government promises people that in the field of energy, transportation, basic commodities and production, our country will face no problems,” added president.
Rouhani also went on to say “with the current state in which importing some unnecessary commodities is banned, there is a very good opportunity for domestic producers and exporters.”
