Iranian non-oil exports, oil sales must counter U.S. sanctions -Rouhani

DUBAI, May 4 (Reuters) - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday Iran should boost non-oil exports and continue oil sales to counter U.S. sanctions, saying Washington was targeting Tehran’s hard currency reserves, state television reported

“America is trying to decrease our foreign reserves ... So we have to increase our hard currency income and cut our currency expenditures,” Rouhani said in remarks carried live on Iranian TV.

“We should increase production and raise our (non-oil) exports and resist America’s plots against the sale of our oil,” Rouhani said.
