US official links economic protests in Iran to sanctions 12.7.2018 DNA: Top News
A top US official focused on sanctions against Iran today linked American financial pressure on Tehran with ongoing economic protests roiling the country, saying she hoped the strain would limit the Islamic Republic's "malign activities" across the Mideast. Sigal P Mandelker, the undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence at the US Treasury, declined to comment when asked if the Trump administration hoped that tightening of the sanctions would spark the Iranian government's overthrow. However, her comments to journalists in Dubai come against the backdrop of the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. The United States is now seeking to choke Iran's vital oil exports to the wider world. "You've seen the Iranian people, of course, stand up loudly, at risk of their own lives, shouting in protest about the corruption that's happening within Iran," Mandelker said. "Of course the fact (is) that so much money has gone to support malign activities elsewhere, with very little focus on the economy ...

Iran will not succumb to US pressure: Hassan Rouhani tells Donald Trump 26.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
President Hassan Rouhani promised Iranians the government would be able to handle the economic pressure of new U.S. sanctions, a day after traders massed outside parliament to protest against a sharp fall in the value of the national currency. 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 programme. This may cut Iran's hard currency earnings from oil exports, and the prospect is triggering a panicked flight of Iranians' savings from the rial into dollars.
