Washington’s new sanctions against Tehran are a demonstration of the complete despair of the current US leadership, said Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at a government meeting before leaving for New York to participate in the UN General Assembly.
According to him, the US has announced sanctions that have already been imposed against Iran earlier, what indicates the complete despair of Washington, TASS reported.
This year, the Iranian delegation is sent to the UN General Assembly in the face of severe pressure from the United States, he noted adding that the people of Iran have shown resilience in the face of sanctions, and now their economy is starting to grow, which means that they have dealt with this problem.
On Friday, the US Treasury announced that US authorities impose sanctions on the Iranian Central Bank, the National Development Fund and Etemad Tejarate Pars Co.
On Thursday, US authorities issued Iran’s President and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif a visa to attend the UN General Assembly in New York. Up to this point, the participation of Rouhani and Zarif in the General Assembly was in question.
