During a visit to Japan, President Rouhani asserted that “U.S. sanctions are considered a kind of economic terrorism and countries that are active in the field of countering terrorism must counter the U.S. move. Iran has exerted all its efforts to save the JCPOA within the framework of its interests, and will continue to do so, and we call on other JCPOA signatories to live up to their commitments”. He further remarked that “we welcome any plan that can increase economic exchanges, especially in the field of energy and increasing oil export and sale… Naturally, we do not turn down any negotiation and agreement that serve our interests”.
