Tehran (IP) - Amir-Hossein Ghazizadeh Hashemi, the first deputy speaker of the Iranian Parliament, said that the US' recent sanctions proved that the country has no other choice.

Iran PressIran News: On the sidelines of the international conference on the "US Decline", Ghazizadeh Hashemi, in an exclusive interview with Iran Press, said that the US does funny actions, meaning that when selling oil and its financial transactions are boycotted, the sanction of Iran's Petroleum Minister is meaningless.

He went on to say that since Trump has failed in his foreign policies toward Iran, he takes new actions to have something to say.

The sanctions are not new, and they indicate that the US does not regard anyone in the world, he concluded.
