The Iranian President noted that the US sanction against Tehran were "nothing new," also stating that Washington would eventually return to the nuclear deal it had left.
"The United States of America one day, sooner or later, will come back. This cannot be continued," Rouhani told a news conference.
Previously, Rouhani accused the Trump administration of trying to overthrow Iranian government, adding that Tehran was ready to come back to negotiations within the UN Security Council.
The statement of the supreme leader echoed words of Iranian military officials, who had announced that the Islamic Republic would acquire new military equipment in order to boost the country’s security.
