Iranian President Hassan Rouhani presented the country’s ‘resistance budget’, tailored specifically under economic pressure imposed by Washington sanctions, to the country’s parliament in Tehran on Sunday.

Addressing the parliament, Rouhani announced that the budget was based on the amortisation of sanctions pressure, and will be less focused on the oil revenues: “This budget announces to the world that, despite sanctions, we will manage the country, especially in regards to the oil. Next year’s budget will not rely on oil, based on our evaluation of the situation.”

Rouhani also announced an improvement in economic relations with Iran’s partner countries, saying “this process is getting better in recent months”, and expressed the hope for further improvement in the following year.

In 2018, the US under the administration of US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran Nuclear Deal, known as the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] and reimposed sanctions against the country.
