Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif claimed US sanctions caused local pressure but will not change the country’s policies.
Attending the Doha Forum 2018 in Qatar on Saturday, Zarif said “It’s obviously the case that we are facing economic pressure because of the US sanctions. US is a major global power and it can actually create painful conditions for other countries. But would that lead to a change in policy? I can assure you that it won’t.”
Tramp’s administration has a special focus on Islamic Republic’s missile program and transferring weapons to its proxy forces.
“If there is an art, we have perfected in Iran and can teach to others for a price, it is the art of evading sanctions,” the Foreign Minister added.
He blamed American once again for breaking the outcome of the Iran nuclear agreement.
US president Donald Trump pulled out of the 2015 Iran Nuclear deal in May, called the deal “worst ever” agreement, which was signed during Barak Obama’s administration as Iran was reportedly buying time to develop its military project.
