Iranian President Hassan Rouhani promised that the country will sell oil despite American attempts to cut its sales 'to zero' during a TV address broadcast from Tehran on Monday. «We have to make Americans understand that they cannot talk to the great Iranian nation with the language of pressure and sanctions. They have to be punished by history,» stressed the Iranian leader. «This fact is... Еще that the Islamic Republic of Iran today can sell its oil and, God willing, it will sell it,» he continued. He went on to say that the current US administration is the most 'racist' in the modern era. On Monday, the US government reinstated its pre-Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action sanctions which target Iranian oil exports in particular. It comes after Washington withdrew from the JCPOA in May.
