The President emphasised, "I believe that in the current situation of the country, there is no tolerance for verbal war; However, in addition to the spread of a contagious disease, we also face severe sanctions; The Americans also want to interfere in the normal trade between Iran and a friendly country in carrying an oil product, and this is something that has nothing to do with them and is not compatible with any law”.

Dr Rouhani added, "If there was no unity within the country between the government, other branches and the armed forces, the Americans might have succeeded in their aggression and another Gibraltar in the Caribbean, but unity and solidarity prevented such a thing from happening".
