On Saturday the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) announced that Iran has carried out all the necessary measures to enable the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) Tehran agreed with the IAEA and six countries (China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States) plus the European Union in July 2015.
Under the terms of the deal, Iran agreed to limit its nuclear capabilities and submit to IAEA monitoring of its facilities in return for the lifting of economic and financial sanctions.
"We didn't have any kind of economic ties with the US and there won't be any," declared Rouhani.
He explained that beyond negotiations about the purchase of specific goods such as airplanes, nuts or carpets, companies based in the US would not be allowed to invest in Iran.
"If the US wants to invest in Iran's economy or technology they will face particular difficulties. However, of course we are ready to provide certain benefits to those American companies which do not carry out their activities from the territory of the US," said Rouhani.
