Imam believed the Iranian intellectuals, statement, officials, relevant authorities and scientists have resorted to their initiatives in order to stand on their feet and confront such brutal embargoes. 

According to Imam, the history of Islam is full of examples of resistance against injustices and blockades. In early days of Islam, the entire family of the holy prophet of Islam was besieged by the disbelievers. The holy prophet, his family and followers had resisted and kept spreading divine message at sensitive juncture of history. They brought the humanity out of darkness and guided them towards divine and humane values. 

Imam believed that sanctions and embargoes against Iran by the imperial powers would lead the nation towards a self-sufficiency, growth and progress.

US President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the Iran nuclear agreement in May and said he planned to reinstate US nuclear-related sanctions on Iran and impose "the highest level" of economic bans on the Islamic Republic. 

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

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has recently said that the Islamic Republic will not enter into new negotiations with the United States due to cheating and bullying nature of its government.
