President Rouhani indicated that "we won't let pressures by the U.S. and its mercenaries create major problems for the Iranian nation and we will never surrender under any pressure". Addressing the U.S., Rouhani argued that "you are trying to stop our oil exports but you won't be able to do so. If you are thinking about severing our relations with our neighbouring countries, you won't be able to do so and if you are thinking about putting pressures on people, you won't succeed in this incorrect path".
