  • Vaezi:US' unilateral sanctions not effective any more

Head of Presidential Office Mahmoud Vaezi calls the US' unilateral sanctions ineffective .

Iran press/Iran :Vaezi, who is in Ankara to convey the message of President Rouhani to Turkish counterpart Recep Teyyip Erdogan, told IRNA upon arrival in Turkey that both US' sanctions on Iran and on two Turkish ministers have not been welcomed in the region and globally. 

He said the new US government approach to global issues is unacceptable to the world public opinion. 
He added that a government in the US thinks that what it says should be heeded by other countries and such a method is not acceptable by nations and governments.


On Monday, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order, re-imposing a first round of unilateral sanctions on Iran, which had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)

The move came three months after Washington’s unilateral withdrawal from the accord despite objections from the other parties to the deal – France, Britain, Germany, Russia and China – and the international community.

In a tweet, Trump described the fresh measures against Tehran as “the most biting sanctions ever,” warning that the countries doing business with Iran will “NOT be doing business with the United States."
