US Dream of Halting Iran's Oil Exports Never to Come True"Americans will never achieve their goal of halting Iran's oil exports," President Rouhani said.

The Iranian president reiterated that Tehran will continue to export oil despite the US pressures and sanctions."

President Rouhani said that Iran's trade balance has become positive over past 9 months due to the 750-million-dollar worth of non-oil exports.

"This indicates that the activities of the economic executives and the private and public sectors have been successful," the Iranian president added.

In relevant remarks in early December, President Rouhani stressed Washington's failure to prevent his country's oil exports, expressing pleasure that crude sales have even increased after the US sanctions.

"Part of my meeting today with the oil minister pertained to a discussion of the conditions of oil sales. Thanks God, we are in suitable and good conditions. The Americans wanted to prevent our oil exports and I clearly tell people that our oil exports have improved after November 4 (the day US imposed oil sanctions against Iran) compared to the past," President Rouhani said after a joint meeting with the parliament speaker and the judiciary chief in Tehran.

He stressed Americans' failure to block Iran's oil supplies, and said they also made attempts to dissuade OPEC members from decreasing production but they failed.

"Our oil sales will stay the same course that it was before this (OPEC) meeting," Rouhani said.
