Ebrahim Raisi has officially become Iran’s new president. Raisi is a conservative cleric and protégé of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. On Tuesday, he vowed to fight U.S. sanctions.
President Ebrahim Raisi: “We will definitely pursue the lifting of tyrannical sanctions, but we will definitely not allow people’s financial ability and the economy to be impacted by it. We will not link the sanctions to outsiders’ wishes.”
