Iranian President Hassan Rouhani assured the nation that sanctions have failed to prevent Iran's progress, and said despite being pressured by the western sanctions, the government has managed to prevent the growth of inflation and recession.

"Our nation should know well that the problem of sanctions doesn’t prevent our growth and development; the sanctions may slow down our movement, but the government is honored that it has fought recession and inflation under the sanctions and has succeeded," Rouhani said, addressing a cabinet meeting in Tehran on Wednesday.

He also said that Iran is gaining success in nuclear talks with the world powers, and stated that if the current trend continues, more success will be waiting for the great Iranian nation.
