Nobakht: Iran plans to by­pass sanc­tions

Iran Daily - - National -

Head of Iran’s Plan and Bud­get Or­ga­ni­za­tion Mo­ham­mad Baqer Nobakht said on Satur­day that the coun­try has de­vised a “com­pre­hen­sive plan” to counter the sanc­tions and is ready to cir­cum­vent them.

Nobakht said all Ira­nian or­ga­ni­za­tions should co­op­er­ate to deal with the sanc­tions against the Is­lamic Repub­lic, Tas­nim News Agency re­ported.

De­plor­ing for­eign-based think tanks that mon­i­tor the situation in Iran to nul­lify Tehran’s plans, Nobakht said such ac­tions could never dam­age the Ira­nian ad­min­is­tra­tion’s morale, adding, “We will by­pass the sanc­tions.”

He said Iran has pre­pared a com­pre­hen­sive plan to deal with the sanc­tions, point­ing to plans to reg­u­late the cur­rency mar­ket and to cre­ate jobs.

The ad­min­is­tra­tion could al­lo­cate $1 bil­lion to save jobs and cre­ate new job op­por­tu­ni­ties, he added, say­ing the Plan and Bud­get Or­ga­ni­za­tion has plans to counter the sanc­tions by sup­port­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers.

US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump with­drew Wash­ing­ton in May from the land­mark Iran nu­clear agree­ment, reached be­tween Iran and the P5+1 group of coun­tries in 2015, and de­cided to reim­pose uni­lat­eral sanc­tions against Tehran.

Un­der the deal, Iran un­der­took to put lim­its on its nu­clear pro­gram in ex­change for the re­moval of nu­clear-re­lated sanc­tions.
