US sanctions just harm Iran economy, fail to achieve goals

Tehran, June 13, IRNA - First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri says that the US sanctions inflicted damages on Iranian economy, but, the US failed to achieve its goals as the country has stood strongly.

Sanctions could just harm the Iranian economy but failed to make it fall down, Jahangiri said at a ceremony held in Tehran Saturday on introducing the new head of foundation for martyrs and war veterans affairs.

The government is making efforts to undertake the pressures from the sanctions and shift it from shoulders of the people, Jahangiri added.

He said that the United States- old foe of Iran- has been trying in vain to make Iranian nation's progress stagnant.

Concerning the regional developments, Jahangiri said that Saudis and Zionists in the region have joined hands and made plots against Iran in different periods.

Referring to the recent anti-Iran plot hatched by the United States which is no longer a member of the July 2015 nuclear deal as it withdrew unilaterally from the deal, Jahangiri said Iran can buy its arms needs or sell its indigenous products from next few months after arms embargo against Iran are lifted despite the US attempt to extend the embargo.

He touched on the critical conditions created across the world by coronavirus pandemic since Dec 2019, saying that the virus has put the world's greatest economies in danger.

He further described the US sanctions as virus worse than COVID-19.

He stressed that coherence and unity inside the country as well as the Supreme Leader's guidelines can help the nation breeze through the difficulties.
