The President of Iran Mr. Hassan Rouhani on his return to Iran after attending the UN General Assembly held at New York reportedly stated at the news conference that “Americans had no achievements in this public assembly. When Mr. Trump was speaking and at the beginning of his speech bragged a lot about the accomplishments of his two-year-old administration everyone laughed”. He further remarked that the assembly had shown political isolation to America, other than one or two countries, no one is supporting America. It's an historic political isolation, which is very rare in the case of America, he added. The 73rd session of the UN general assembly was held at the New York, America this week. The assembly was attended by the countries to discuss current global issues.

He further informed the UN security council of Washington's intention of pursuing further sanctions against the Islamic republic. Earlier also in the month of August Washington has imposed new sanctions on Iran, targeting its trade in gold and other precious metals, purchases of US dollars and its car industry. The American president added that the US will issue another round of tougher sanctions in November, aimed at crippling Iran’s oil sales and banking sector.
To which the Iranian defense minister Amir Hatami responded that Iran would not bow to intensifying US economic pressure. Further, the Iranian president told the IRNA that “America and the Zionist regime (Israel) are trying to block the people of Iran from their revolutionary path and movement with economic pressure and cruel sanctions. But they should know that today we are self-sufficient and independent with regard to military products and have no dependence on any power in the world”.
On the US withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear deal, Mr. Rouhani suggested that the American president is suffering from "weakness of intellect”.
