Rouhani calls Trump‘s sanctions a ‘crime and aggression‘

VIENNA – US sanctions against Iran are a "crime and aggression," Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday as he called on European governments and others to stand up to President Donald Trump‘s policies against Tehran.

"Iran will survive this round of US sanctions as it has survived before. This US government will not stay in office forever … But the history will judge other nations based on what they do today," Rouhani said during a visit to Vienna.
