The US sanctions complicate but do not block Iran's activity, member of the Iranian Expediency Discernment Council of the System Ahmad Tavakkoli said in an interview with ILNA.
He said that although the US tried to block Iran’s activity, it failed to do that.
Tavakkoli added that expenses for providing Iran with consumer goods increase due to sanctions.
Iran also had to sell oil at a low price, he added.
Commenting on the Guardian Council’s rejection of Combating Terrorist Financing (CFT) project, he said that the Guardian Council did not reject the project but returned it for correction.
The Guardian Council just says whether the projects are in conformity with Sharia law and the Constitution or not, he said.
