Minister: West to be forced to completely remove sanctions
EghtesadOnline: Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs Ali Tayyebnia said the West will eventually have to compeletly remove sanctions against Iran as Tehran has been quite faithful to its commitments to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
However, he noted, the Western parties of the JCPOA have failed to do so.
Pointing to the massive problems caused by unjust sanctions for Iran since the end of the imposed war in 1988, the minister said Iran is among very few countries in the world which has succeeded to overcome huge economic problems thanks to the guidelines offered by the Supreme Leader.
He said that by now the country has successfully overcome extensive economic problems caused by sanctions and even got a positive economic growth rate despite low oil prices, reports IRNA.
The Iranian minister went on to stress the determination of the Iranian government to follow Resistance Economy policies to attain sustainable economic growth rate.
He said Iran is pursuing the goal of developing knowledge-based economy.
