Tehran (IP) - Iran's president expressed: "Although the sanctions have put people under pressure, they have not been able to break us."

Iran PressIran News: Rouhani stated there are difficulties due to the pressure of sanctions on people's lives, but at the same time, great things are being done.

The president added: "It can be said that sanctions in the agricultural sector and water and electricity projects have been almost ineffective. During the last 7 years, we had important projects in mind, which we inaugurated with difficulty and delay; and this is a great honor for the water and electricity industry."

He stated that in the mining, railway, road, port, and housing industries, we went through all the difficulties according to the frameworks that we had in mind, and noted: "People should know that the sanctions could not make us surrender and have not made us give up development; We carried on these plans with difficulty, and I am sure that our people will overcome these problems."

Rouhani said: "Today, the highest betrayal of the Iranian people in the middle of the battlefield against the United States and Zionism and the reaction of the region are words that want to disappoint the people or destroy their spirit. This is the highest betrayal. We must all help each other."
