“We once tried the path of removal of the sanction and negotiated for several years, but it did not yield results,” said Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei at the meeting of the Supreme Council of Economic Coordination, APA reports citing Tasnim News Agency.
Addressing at the meeting, Ayatollah Khamenei slammed the sanctions as a “bitter reality” and a “crime” that the US and its European allies have committed against the Iranian nation.
“Such a crime has been committed against the Iranian nation for years, but it has intensified over the past three years,” the Leader said in the meeting, attended by the heads of the three branches of power and other members of the Supreme Council of Economic Coordination.
The two remedies for dealing with the sanctions are “nullifying and overcoming the sanctions” and their “removal”, Ayatollah Khamenei noted, adding, “We once tried the path of removal of the sanction and negotiated for several years, but it did not yield results.”
Describing efforts to overcome the sanctions and countering them as the proper option, the Leader said, “This path might have difficulties and problems at the beginning, but it will have a successful outcome.”
