US Pressures Won’t Stop Iran from Continuing Development Plans: Rouhani

TEHRAN – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has criticized US sanctions against the country, stressing that these pressures will not make Iran give up on his plans and dreams of development.
“We did not think that a crafty administration sponsoring terrorists would come to power in America and put more pressure on Iran, the region, the world and its allies more than any other American administration in history,” Rouhani said Tuesday at the inauguration ceremony for the second phase of the 7th Tehran wastewater treatment plant in Pakdasht county.
Rouhani said it is true that the sanctions have caused difficulties in the process of carrying out his administration’s plans to develop the country, “but we will not give up our hopes and dreams and will continue our unremitting efforts for the good -being and the prosperity of people and the promotion of justice.”
The United States, under the Trump administration, imposed unilateral sanctions on the Iranian economy after withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in May 2018.
Washington hopes for a better deal with Tehran, but Iran has always stressed that there will be no negotiations until the unjust sanctions are lifted and Washington fulfills its commitments under the UN-approved JCPOA.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Rouhani stressed the need to obtain power.
“We think power is useful against America and the oppressors; no, it is also useful for interacting with friends, neighbors and brothers. If you are not powerful, even a small neighbouring country would intimidate you.”
