At a meeting with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas in Tehran, President Rouhani stated that "with its unjust sanctions, the U.S is moving in the path of economic terrorism", adding that "the war that the U.S. has started against Iran for the past one year will never be beneficial for anybody and the Iranian nation have proved in this time span that they will withstand these pressures and bullying behaviours". Rouhani went on to argue that the "JCPOA could be a basis for dialogue and diplomacy in the world, but because of the U.S.' unilateral moves and the lack of commitments, it has turned into a factor of pessimism towards the principle of negotiations".
