Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has called on all branches of the government to join forces to counter the negative impacts of brutal American sanctions against the Iranian nation.
He said that if Iran transforms crude oil to more useful products, it can easily circumvent the enemies' sanctions.
'Iran has large capacities for building wealth by exporting commodities produced from crude oil,' the cleric added, while highlighting Iran's huge energy resources and its petrochemical factories.
Contrary to certain neighboring countries which suffer currency turmoil, the Islamic Republic of Iran has only 11 billion dollars foreign debt which is not considerable for a country which is listed among 20 top world economies, he noted.
US President Donald Trump has mounted pressure on Iran and on May 8 announced that Washington would withdraw from Iran's nuclear deal and re-impose nuclear-related sanctions on the country.
This is while most world powers, including Russia, China, and the European Union, have repeatedly stressed that keeping the deal is in the interest of the world peace and security.
