TEHRAN (Dispatches) – Iranian First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri said Tuesday Iran’s economy is recovering from the effects of draconian U.S. sanctions.
"Despite the U.S. imposition of tough sanctions, Iran’s economic condition is moving toward stability and improvement,” Jahangiri said. "This is while the Americans have waged an all-out economic war against Iran,” he added. "Iran’s macroeconomic indicators are promising and reports received from every single business confirm that.”
The enemies thought that by these moves (sanctions), they would lead the Iranian economy into collapse, he said, adding that, however, the Iranian people passed through this difficult era and are "moving toward job creation, production and prosperity”.
