Rouhani stressed that Iran has successfully nullified the enemy’s' plot to cause famine and economic hardship in the country.

“Development of non-oil exports is an effective tool for achieving the policies of Economy of Resistance underlined by the Supreme Leader to fight the US unjust and illegitimate sanctions,” he added.

Pointing to new conditions created for negotiations with the countries which have blocked Iran’s assets due to the US coercion, Rouhani expressed hope that the conditions would lead to stability in forex market.

In relevant remarks last December, he said that the US-orchestrated sanctions that had aimed at collapsing Iran's economy in a short period have now failed, adding that the Iranian nation has won the economic war imposed by Washington.

“Although the economic war has caused a lot of difficulties, but, finally the Iranian nation won the US war and has become more resilient than before,” Rouhani said on Tuesday December 15, 2020.
