President Rouhani contended that "the goal that the U.S. is seeking by stopping oil exports is to reduce our foreign currency incomes. To prevent this, we need to increase our non-oil exports". He added that "all authorities are unanimous that America's decision to stop Iran's oil exports is incorrect, and we will not let that happen". Rouhani also suggested that "there are still other ways [for Iranian oil exports] that the U.S. is not aware of".
