Hassan Rouhani: "We are in the economic war situation"
Written by: Actualité à la Une

Washington - On November 5, President Hassan Rouhani condemned the reimposition of U.S. sanctions on Iran. “We have to make Americans understand that they cannot talk to the great Iranian nation with the language of pressure and sanctions. They have to be punished,” he told officials from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Finance. Rouhani also vowed to defy the United States.

“We are in the economic war situation. We are confronting a bullying enemy. We have to stand to win," he said. “I have told leaders of all countries whom I met on the margins of the U.N. General Assembly that we will proudly break the sanctions, because these sanctions are unjust and against the law, treaties and U.N. Security Council resolutions.”
