Iranian President criticise US over sanctions

Published:Saturday | August 30, 2014 | 2:17 PM

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has criticised the United States for new sanctions imposed on 25 individuals and companies in Iran.



US officials announced yesterday that the new sanctions were aimed at those suspected of evading previous sanctions, giving aid to Iran’s nuclear programme or supporting terrorism.



However, speaking on Iranian television, Rouhani said the sanctions are not compatible with the spirit of the current nuclear negotiations with the U-S and 5 other international powers.



However, he says Iran was still committed to continuing those talks.
