President: All capacities will be used to remove sanctions

Bojnurd, North Khorasan, June 14, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that the government will use all the capacities to remove anti-Iranian sanctions.

Speaking to a large gathering of people in Bojnurd, President referred to the economic pressure of sanctions on common people, adding that those who suppose sanctions are unimportant are not aware of the people’s pocket.

Those who are against negotiations are ill-wishers who imported goods from abroad ten times as expensive as the normal price, the President added.

He said that government is committed to develop the country and remove the sanctions and it will withstand against those who have interests in foreign embargos.

Government has the support of Supreme Leader and nation and will use all its capacities to convince UN to remove Iran’s sanctions, Rouhani underlined.

Iran and the G5+1 are in talks to hammer out a lasting accord that would end more than a decade of impasse over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program.
