President Rouhani: Enemy Seeks to Disturb Iran’s Decision-making System
Iran’s President Hasan Rouhani said on Sunday that the main goal behind the economic war of attrition imposed on the Iranian nation is to cause turbulence in the country’s decision-making system.
Speaking during a meeting of the government’s economic coordination headquarters, President Rouhani urged the Iranians to maintain solidarity to foil the plots hatched by the enemies.
He said that the enemies expected that Iran’s economy would face uncontrollable turbulence as a result of the restrictions due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the imposition of the inhumane sanctions on the country.
President Rouhani said thanks to God the Iranian people have stood by their policy-makers who are endeavoring round-the-clock to provide the essential needs of the people despite the pressure of the sanctions.
He hailed positive steps taken to give a boost to the stock market and render loans to businesses to support the production sector.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Islamic Republic of Iran will not talk about the negotiated issue again, stressing that the only choice for any US President must be reactivating the nuclear deal in order to gain the international confidence.
Russia has played down the US threat of sanctions over any arms trade with Iran following the expiry of a UN arms embargo that Washington failed to keep in place, saying such bans cannot stop the growth of Moscow-Tehran defense cooperation.
Moscow previously defended Tehran, criticizing the unilateral actions of the United States in connection with the situation around Iran’s nuclear programme. Russia stressed that Washington’s claim that the UN sanctions on Iran were restored was misleading as the UN Security Council (UNSC) took no such steps.
Iran’s main airline company Homa, known internationally as IranAir, has announced it is restoring flights to Istanbul after a seven-month halt that was caused by the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in Iran and other parts of the region.
