Iranvow to expand military power

(VOVWORLD) - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Monday that Iran is determined to expand its military power and ballistic missile program despite mounting pressure from other countries to curb its defenses. 

Rouhani said Iran will defeat the sanctions re-imposed by the US after President Donald Trump withdrew the US from Iran’s nuclear accord with world powers last year. He said the Iranian people will suffer some economic difficulties because of the sanctions, but will overcome the problems by helping each other.
