He made the remarks on Tuesday in the ceremony of inaugurating some national projects of the Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade via video conferences.
"There was a conspiracy since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in Iran by our enemies that everything should be stopped," Rouhani said, adding, "They became very angry when we announced in late March that businesses should be opened and the production units should not be closed."
"Foreign media reported that the Iranian government did not value the lives of the people at all," he noted.
"They wanted to take the country into crisis and shut everything down," he added.
