Zarif accuses US allies of promoting terrorists

Politics - Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohammad Javad Zarif rejected allegations by the US officials on Iran's support for what they describe as 'terrorists' and blamed some US allies of promoting terrorists in the region.

US allies like Saudi Arabia are “the countries that are producing terrorists for you. And the United States is going after Iran. I don't know why,” Zarif said during a recent interview with the American Television CBC.

Iran’s top diplomat went on to denounce the new sanctions by Washington against Tehran in response to Iran’s development of its defensive missile power, saying the new sanctions are a violation of the spirit of the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action signed between Iran and the world powers in 2015.

Tehran is going to investigate if the new US measures violate “the letter of the deal” as well, Zarif said, warning that Iran “will act accordingly”.

Rejecting President Trump’s claims that the nuclear deal “was bad for Americans” the Foreign Minister said, 'This is a multilateral deal, approved by the Security Council, and it's not a bilateral deal to be withdrawn from or to be renegotiated'.

Zarif described Trump travel ban order on six Muslim majority countries, including Iran, as “repugnant” saying that 'What the United States has done against the Iranian people over the past several months have been really repugnant'.

The Iranian top diplomat also affirmed that it is up to the US government to stop sending all these hostile signals.”
