Tehran, Iran, Nov.5


Iran’s First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri was quoted by media as saying that the major goal of US sanctions is to damage the government of Iran and eliminate the hope of people.

In the past few months, the US was disrupting Iran's channels for importing medicine, said Jahangiri.

"The main issue is the national unity to improve the business environment. So the private sector must become empowered and take advantage of the improved trade environment,” he said.

Referring to the need to attract foreign investment in the current situation, he said that due to the rise in the exchange rate in Iran, the attraction of foreign investment is easy.
