Iran president condemns US sanctions 'invasion'
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani called Western sanctions an "invasion" on Saturday after Washington imposed penalties on 25 businesses, banks and individuals.

 

"Sanctions are an invasion of the Iranian nation. We should resist the invasion and put the invaders in their place," Rouhani told officials in remarks broadcast by state TV. "We should not allow the continuation and repetition of the invasion."
