Iran isn’t afraid of sanctions and won’t retreat, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said, Trend reports via Mehr News Agency.
He made the remarks at the meeting of Administrative Council of Golestan province.
“This economic war has been imposed on us but we will stand”, Rouhani stressed.
“We are proud that we weren’t the party who violated our commitments,” he noted.
“Many provoked us to violate our obligations, but we didn’t start the economic war,” he said.
He also said that Iran’s enemies are seeking to separate people from the establishment so that Iran abandon its independence and be isolated, but they didn’t succeed and won’t be successful in the future.
“Today, we are producing 20-percent [reactor] fuel and despite the sanctions in recent months, we bought ten container ships,” he added.
Rouhani noted that Incheh-Borun corridor connects the East to Europe and needs to be completed and electrified, adding that the necessary groundwork for electrification of Gorgan rail link to Mashhad or Garmsar cities has been conducted by the government.
Appreciating the warm welcoming of the people of Golestan province, the president said that the unity and empathy of the officials and the people of the province are very valuable.
