Iranian President Hasan Rouhani lashed out at the United States on Wednesday, stressing that the sanctions reveal Washington animosity towards the Iranian people more than ever.
Addressing a Wednesday session of the cabinet, Rouhani said: “Unfortunately, Americans did not learn from this difficult situation in the world.”
He went on to say that the current situation was the best historic opportunity for the US officials to return from their false path and to say that they are not against Iranians.
“Americans have always been against Iranians, but the current situation revealed their animosity more than ever,” the Iranian president added as quoted by IRNA news agency.
On the other hand, Rouhani said all provinces of Iran, without exception, have witnessed a downward trend in the coronavirus infection cases.
He noted that the promising statistics suggest that the Iranian medical society, experts and people have been on the right track.
The Iranian president also expressed gratitude to Iranian citizens for observing the health protocols and staying home which resulted in the decline of COVID-19 infections across the country, according to Tasnim news agency.
Rouhani then pointed to an 80% decrease in the Nowruz travels during the first days of spring compared to the past years, saying the disease peak has been over in the majority of the provinces during the very first days of the new year.
