The Iranian President also called U.S. sanctions “economic terrorism”.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday that there could be a “deluge” of drugs, refugees and attacks on the West if reimposed sanctions by the United States weaken Iran’s ability to contain these issues.

“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,” Mr. Rouhani said in a speech carried live on state television.

He also called U.S. sanctions “economic terrorism”.
