Iran's FM: People foil US plots against Iran
By saying that people once again will foil the US plots against Iran, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif asserted that people by their efforts will change the US unreasonable behavior against Iran.
Iran Press/ Iran news: "The sanctions imposed on Iran by the US target Iranian people but Iran's government will do its' best to make a proper condition for the people," Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif noted in an online video on Tuesday, according to Iran Press news agency.
"US follows Israel and Saudi Arabia's policy like before. Washington is alone in this path," Iran's Foreign Minister Zarif added.
"US is very angry because the whole world stands against Washington aggressive policy against Iran," Zarif said.
Iranian Foreign Minister also called on the US to take a long hard look at its' wrong choices and change its' approach from a failed one it has stubbornly followed, instead of prescribing behavioral changes for Iran.
Zarif described it far more effective in bringing about resolution to conflicts and crises that have bedeviled the Middle East for far too long.
In Nov. 06, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the new list of sanctions signifies confusion, quandary, and desperation in Washington, since the list includes a failed bank which went bankrupt 6 years ago and an oil tanker which capsized last year in the south China sea.
After Washington's May 8 exit from the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action (JCPOA), the US gave 90- and 180-day wind-down periods to other countries before it started re-imposing oil sanctions on Tehran on 5 November.
The first round of American sanctions took effect in August, targeting Iran's access to the US dollar, metals trading, coal, industrial software, and auto sector.
US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo along with US Secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, announced the reimposing anti-Iran sanctions on Monday November 5 at a news conference.
The US Treasury Department added 700 individuals, companies, banks, aircraft and Iranian ships to its' sanctions list.
France, Germany, Britain and the European Union issued a joint condemnation of the United States’ move to place fresh sanctions on the Iranian economy, vowing to protect European companies doing "legitimate" business with Tehran.
