  • Iran is a powerful & responsible regional actor: Zarif

Iranian Foreign Minister in a message on twitter said that Iran has been and always will be a stable, powerful & responsible regional actor.

Iran PressIran :  'Bipolar demonization of Iran as either 'taking over MidEast' or 'fighting for survival' indicates US' cognitive disorder & demagoguery unleashed by collapse of America's moral compass,' Mohammad-Javad Zarif tweeted on Friday.

'Iran has been and always will be a stable, powerful & responsible regional actor,' he added.

After Washington's May 8 exit from the historic Iran Deal, the US gave 90 to 180 wind-down period to other countries before it starts re-imposing oil sanctions on Tehran on November 4.

Part of the US illegitimate sanctions were imposed on Iran on August 9. Trump also said he would reinstate the US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose “the highest level” of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

Last month US Secretary of State talked about  a "maximum pressure campaign" targeting Iran that will support protests in this country.

Pompeo along with US national security adviser, John Bolton has been a vocal critic of the Iran and the internationally negotiated Iran nuclear deal of 2015 and advocated immediate regime change.
