President Hassan Rouhani promised Iranians on Tuesday the government would be able to handle the economic pressure of new U.S. sanctions, a day after traders massed outside parliament to protest at a sharp fall in the value of the national currency. Reuters reports Rouhani said the government’s income had not been affected in recent months, and the fall in the rial was the result of “foreign media propaganda” He said: “Even in the worst case, I promise that the basic needs of Iranians will be provided. We have enough sugar, wheat, and cooking oil. We have enough foreign currency to inject into the market,” Washington is to start reimposing economic penalties on Tehran in coming months after U.S. President Donald Trump quit an agreement between major world powers and Iran in which sanctions were lifted in return for curbs on its nuclear program.
