First VP stresses US failure in destabilizing Iranian economy
Iranian First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri underlined that Washington attempted to stir chaos in Iran's economy by imposing the hardest-ever sanctions against the country, but to no avail.
"The Americans are aware that Iran can resolve its problems and therefore, they imposed the hardest-ever sanctions all throughout the history against the Iranian nation, but Iran is still standing on its feet," Jahangiri said, addressing a ceremony in Tehran on Tuesday.
He stressed the Iranian government's efforts to curb the economic turbulence created after the US withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal, and said, "Fortunately, today we are witnessing signs of reviving stability to the country's economy."
Earlier this month, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stressed Washington's failure to prevent his country's oil exports, expressing pleasure that crude sales had even increased after the US sanctions.
