Tehran-China relation costly for supporters of US maximum pressure policy: Spox
Tehran (IP) - Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman said Iran's view about relations with China is a long-term and interest-based one and this relation is costly for those who support US maximum pressure policy.
Iran Press/Iran News: Regarding Iran-China relations, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi said on Friday that Iran has no view on short-term relations with other countries especially such promising countries as china.
Mousavi pointed to the 25-year comprehensive cooperation document between Iran and China as a strategic and long-term one, the animosity against which is foreign-rooted.
He addressed the speculations and lies around the document and said that Iran-China relations and the relations of independent countries have many enemies.
"The US policy-makers feel that at the maximum pressure they put on our nation, and some of them say they are looking for a super-maximum pressure, such cooperation will be costly for them, especially in the economic sphere," he said and went on "they will get sure their policies fail, so they are propagandizing and lying about these collaborations to make us get cold feet through the pressure of public opinion".
Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman previously invalidated any text published about the document draft before the finalization of Iran-China talks.
Also, he rejected claims such as the lease of Iranian islands in the Persian Gulf, monopolization of selling oil at low prices, and the deployment of the armed forces.
