Takht-Ravanchi stated: "The United States has accelerated this process by imposing severe trade sanctions, financial restrictions, freezing assets, travel bans, and other measures that have no purpose other than weakening the will and independence of countries. Iran and we have witnessed it for the last 40 years."
