Iran VP stresses national solidarity against foreign economic war

Tehran, Iran's vice president for women and family affairs on Monday underlined consolidation of national solidarity in the face of foreign economic war imposed on the country.

At the present time, a disproportionate economic war has been imposed on the country and more than ever, national solidarity and people's contribution is needed to leave behind this difficult situation, Masoumeh Ebtekar added.

She described the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal and its sanctions against Iran as 'unfair' and illegal.

US President Donald Trump has mounted pressure on Iran and on May 8 announced that Washington would withdraw from Iran's nuclear deal and re-impose nuclear-related sanctions on the country.

This is while most world powers, including Russia, China, and the European Union, have repeatedly stressed that keeping the deal is in the interest of the world peace and security.
