He made the remarks here Saturday in the opening of a gathering to commemorate martyrdom anniversary of President Mohammad Ali Rajaie and his Prime Minister Mohammad Javad Bahonar.
President Hassan Rouhani says sanctions must be confronted because they constitute oppression and violation of the rights of a nation.
He added that despite the existence and continuation of sanctions, his administration has managed to carry out its tasks over the past year.
President Rouhani also praised the country’s nuclear negotiators for taking on “the formidable task” and urged full support for them.
He said Iran has put a heavy burden on its diplomatic corps in an effort to establish peace in the region, help the voice of the nation be heard louder in the world and stop continuation of oppressions exercised against it throughout the history.
President urged all to help and support Iranˈs diplomatic teams who have already accomplished much but are up to even more in the future.
The president noted that Iranian diplomats have done much so far but are commissioned to accomplish more in the future, so they need the support of the nation and the Supreme Leader to get to their ultimate point.
president stressed that Tehran would not waste time in its negotiations with the P5+1 countries and would put all its efforts and power into the path of nuclear talks.
However, President Rouhani stressed, this never meant that Iran is afraid of sanctions or is not capable of carrying on life in presence of sanctions.
He said efforts should be made to keep anti-Iran sanctions from continuing.
Elsewhere in his speech, he thanked Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and all his colleagues for their extensive efforts as Iranˈs nuclear negotiations team which he said is directly performing under his direction and supervision.
