• Call to Close Ranks Against Economic Plots

    A senior aide to President Hassan Rouhnai Sunday called on the nation to unite and help confront the so-called "economic warfare" launched by the United States. 
    "The Americans presume they have started an all-out economic war against our country and think they will be able to cripple our economy through this war by forcing Iran to come to the negotiating table as said by the US president," First Vice President Es'haq Jahangiri told  an open session of parliament.   
    He was referring to Donald Trump's decision last month to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reimpose economic sanctions on Iran, which has prompted several international companies to announce their exit from the Iranian market.
