Iranian President Hassan Rouhani highlighted the global rejection of the harmful policies the US government has adopted over the past three years, saying the next US administration has an opportunity to correct the mistakes and return to the international law.
Addressing a Sunday session of the government’s Economic Coordination Headquarters, Rouhani said the result of the US presidential election reveals that Washington’s “damaging and wrong” policies over the past three years have been rejected not only by the world’s people, but also by the American citizens.
“The next US administration has now an opportunity to make up for the past mistakes and return to the path of commitment to international undertakings by respecting the global rules,” the Iranian president added.
He reiterated that the Islamic Republic of Iran is committed to the policy of constructive interaction with the world and always carries out its commitments if all parties honor theirs responsibly.
The Iranian nation has overcome an economic war imposed by the US, Rouhani further underlined. “With their heroic resistance against the imposed economic war, the Iranian people proved that the US policy of maximum pressure is doomed to failure.”
He also stressed the need to promote cooperation and interaction between Iran and the neighbors in order to ensure regional security and development, saying the path to economic stability and growth in Iran should be followed strongly and immediately.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the president pointed to the Iranian administration’s policies for economic growth by boosting domestic production, stimulating investment, and strengthening the national currency.
