Rouhani: Iran Facing the Toughest Economic Situation in 40 Years

Moneycontrol

Iran is facing its toughest economic situation in 40 years. Iran’s president said Rouhani spoke at a ceremony at the shrine of the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini U.S. President Donald Trump last year pulled out of an international nuclear deal with Iran and re-imposed sanctions, Reuters reports. 

Workers, including truck drivers, farmers and merchants, have since launched sporadic protests against economic hardships, which have occasionally led to confrontations with security forces.

"Today the country is facing the biggest pressure and economic sanctions in the past 40 years," Hassan Rouhani said, according to the presidential website.

"Today our problems are primarily because of pressure from America and its followers. And the dutiful government and Islamic system should not be blamed," he added.
