President Rouhani: We’re doing all in our power to neutralize, eliminate US sanctions

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani says the Islamic Republic is doing all in its power to neutralize and eliminate unjust and illegal sanctions imposed on the country by the administration of outgoing US President Donald Trump.

“We are doing all we can to render these sanctions ineffective and eliminate them and everybody must work to this end. All three branches [of the government] must join hands under the guidance of Leader [of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei] and I promise people that they will see better days in terms of livelihood, health, and shattering of [US] sanctions,” the president said while addressing a ceremony held to inaugurate a number of the Ministry of Petroleum’s projects on Thursday.

Rouhani called the sanctions “the joint work of the US’ radicals, Zionists, and the reactionary regional regimes.”

Trump’s administration returned the United States’ stringent economic sanctions against Iran after taking the US out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a multi-party nuclear deal between the Islamic Republic and world powers.

Last Wednesday, Ayatollah Khamenei said the Islamic Republic should not wait even “an hour” to try to have the sanctions removed if this could be done through an honorable process that guaranteed preservation of the country’s esteem. However, the Leader advised the nation and government to focus primarily on trying to neutralize the sanctions instead of seeking to secure their removal.
