DUBAI (Reuters) - President Hassan Rouhani presented a draft state budget to parliament on Sunday, saying it was designed to resist U.S. sanctions by limiting dependence on oil exports, which Washington has targeted.
“This is a budget to resist sanctions...with the least possible dependence on oil,” Rouhani told parliament, according to state television.
