Larijani made the remarks on the sidelines of a ceremony to launch a new radar system in the port city of Bandar Abbas on Saturday, IRNA reported.
Referring to the sanctions on Iran, he said the country should pay more heed to domestic capacities. However, he noted that the methods should be changed.
US President Donald Trump pulled his country out of the 2015 landmark nuclear deal with Iran in May and reimposed sanctions on the country.
Trump has also warned other countries against doing business with Iran, saying he had imposed “the most biting” sanctions on the country.
“Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States,” he tweeted.
