The US has chosen the ‘wrong path’ the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned speaking before his minister cabinet in Tehran on Wednesday.
“This is the wrong path that they have chosen,” the Iranian President said, adding that “they have embarrassed themselves in the eye of the world, in the eye of our nation.”
According to Rouhani, “these tyrannical wrong sanctions of the US will result in the suffering of our dear noble nation,” however it is “impossible” to “completely stop Iran’s oil.”
He accused the US of not respecting “international laws and regulations” and suppressing the “large nations of this region” meaning the people of Palestine.
The US reinstated all the sanctions it had previously lifted as part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran nuclear deal, on Monday.
The sanctions target Iran’s oil, banking and shipping industries and the Trump administration has also promised to institute harsh penalties for any other states that continue to conduct trade with the country.
