President Rouhani told his cabinet that "in the past one year, the enemies have been continuously trying to make people worried, anxious and discouraged. Of course, they have put pressures on our people and this is normal". Iran, he went on to say, "will never yield to the enemies. If our nation yields to the U.S., this means that we have to yield to them till the end, giving up our dignity, independence and honor". "We are always open to dialogue and logic", Rouhani added, "if those who want to talk respect our country's dignity, law and international regulations".
