Tehran, Sep 08: President Hassan Rouhani says Iran routinely receives invitations from the United States for talks even as the country is pressured by the US in the form of sanctions.

Rouhani said on Saturday in a speech broadcast on state TV: “Every day they send us messages in various ways saying let's talk.”

Rouhani says Iranians will not surrender to America's “economic war” on Iran, a reference to renewed sanctions resulting from the US pulling out of the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and Western powers in May.

Iran's rial value has been sharply falling since then.

President Donald Trump has said the US is concerned about Iran's ballistic missile program and regional influence.
