Iran on Friday branded US officials as “economic terrorists” saying threats to impose tougher sanctions on the country will not force it to succumb to pressure. 
“Over the past 40 years Iranians have not paid heed to the so-called harsh and crippling sanctions imposed by various US administrations and have never yielded and will never yield to bullying as they are armed with prudence and determination and rely on their own capabilities and wisdom,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said in a statement, in reference to the period since the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979, ISNA reported. 
He made the comments after US President Donald Trump said “we’re putting sanctions on Iran, the likes of which nobody has ever seen before, including, frankly, North Korea.”
