President Hassan Rouhani said the Iranian administration has thwarted the US’ plot to cause economic collapse in Iran despite the currency crunch and intensified sanctions over the past two and a half years.
In comments at a meeting of the government’s economic coordination headquarters on Sunday, Rouhani said his administration’s good planning has prevented the US from achieving the ominous objective of economic collapse of Iran.
“Although the inhuman and illegal American sanctions have reduced Iran’s currency incomes over the past two and a half years, the administration has successfully fought off the American economic war,” he was quoted by Tasnim news agency as saying.
Rouhani also stressed the need for political calm and solidarity at home, saying the enemies have capitalized on rift and disagreement inside Iran as a backing for the severe economic war.
He called on all Iranian officials to exercise political rationality to avoid disputes.
