US sanctions 'economic terrorism' - Rouhani

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday that the United States sanctions imposed on Iran represent "economic terrorism," according to AFP.

"America's unjust and illegal sanctions against the honourable nation of Iran have targeted our nation as a clear instance of terrorism," Rouhani stated. "Economic terrorism is designed to create panic in the economy of a country and fear in other countries in order to prevent investment in the target country," he added.

On Wednesday, Rouhani said that his country showed it "has no problem with holding dialogue and negotiations."
