He could be correct with the open borders dems in charge.
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday said US sanctions were “economic terrorism,” and would harm efforts to fight terror and drug-smuggling, as well as lead to an increase in the number of asylum seekers.
“I warn those who impose sanctions that if Iran’s ability to fight drugs and terrorism are affected… you will not be safe from a deluge of drugs, asylum seekers, bombs and terrorism,” he said, according to the Reuters news agency.
Washington has reimposed an oil embargo and other damaging sanctions on Iran since pulling out in May from a landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and major powers.
“America’s unjust and illegal sanctions against the honorable nation of Iran have targeted our nation in a clear instance of terrorism,” Rouhani said in a televised speech from a conference on terrorism and regional cooperation attended by parliament speakers from Afghanistan, China, Pakistan, Russia and Turkey.
“We are facing an all-out assault which is not only threatening our independence and identity, but also is bent on breaking our long-standing ties,” he added.
Rouhani drew parallels with the sanctions and other pressure faced by the countries attending the conference.
“When they put pressure on China’s trade, we are all harmed… By punishing Turkey, we are all punished. Any time they threaten Russia, we too consider our security to be endangered,” he said.
“When they impose sanctions on Iran, they deprive all of us of the benefits of international trade, energy security and sustainable development. And in fact, they impose sanctions on everyone.
“We are here to say that we don’t intend to tolerate such insolence.”
