US sanctions have failed to hamper Iran’s progress in the field of nuclear technology, President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday, pledging that the country will not change course under foreign pressure. 
Rouhani made the comments at a ceremony held in Tehran to mark National Nuclear Technology Day, during which 114 achievements related to centrifuge technology, nuclear medicine and power plants were unveiled, the Presidential Office’s website reported. 
“You are completely mistaken if you think you can prevent Iran from making progress in the area of nuclear technology,” he told the Americans. 
Relations between Tehran and Washington took a turn for the worse last year after US President Donald Trump pulled out of a nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers and reimposed energy, financial and industrial sanctions on the country, including on its oil exports—the lifeblood of Iranian economy.
