Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi vowed on Sunday to tackle Iran's economic woes and said his government was working to lift the sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic. "The government is doing everything to achieve economic stability and a predictable market," he said in a television interview, according to the AFP news agency. "Lifting sanctions is being pursued with vigor," he added, alluding to the negotiations over the 2015 nuclear deal that gave Iran sanctions relief in return for curbs on its nuclear program.

"The people are well-aware of the situation in the country when I took the reins of government," Raisi stated. Iran has gradually scaled back its compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal it signed with world powers in response to former US President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the agreement in May of 2018. Indirect negotiations between the US and Iran on a return to the nuclear deal resumed in Vienna last week, after a six-month hiatus following Raisi’s election in June.
