Rouhani: U.S. pressure on Iran becomes ineffective

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Washington's maximum pressures and sanctions have become ineffective and did not work.

Although the U.S. pressure on Iran has been intensified sharply, it has practically lost its capacity, the U.S. president said at the cabinet session this morning.

Addressing the Iranian nation, Rouhani said the U.S. has imposed the most unprecedented sanctions against Iran, the sanctions which cannot be compared even with those under the Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter.

He added that the maximum pressure approach taken by the U.S. is considered as a clear symbol of "economic terrorism".

Such measures will be registered in history; meanwhile, the Iranian nation has strongly stood up to the maximum pressure," IRNA cited the Iranian president as saying.

"Despite the ill-wishers' propaganda against Iran, the country is currently in satisfactory situation," Rouhani added.
