Iranian president says able to overcome impacts of U.S. sanctions – Xinhua (www.xinhuanet.com)

TEHRAN, July 14 (Xinhua) — Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday that Iran has been able to overcome the impacts of the U.S. sanctions, state TV reported.

“The Americans were expecting the country’s economy to come to a halt after the onset of the sanctions, but today we have managed to run the country with reliance on oil-free economy,” Rouhani said during his address to the government’s Economic Coordination Headquarters.

While the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the world economy and hampered the supply of basic needs even in some developed countries, the Iranian government has dealt with the difficult conditions with special arrangements, he added.

“This is a display of power and a major victory for the Iranian nation in the economic war,” the president noted.

In response, Iran has maintained a tough stance and scaled back its nuclear commitments. Enditem
