New Sanctions against Iran Indicate US Ill Will: Spox
Story Code : 996297
In a statement issued on Thursday, Saeed Khatibzadeh said that the Islamic Republic of Iran and its Armed Forces are a nightmare for the terrorist and extremist groups in the region and it’s natural that the US, as their godmother, would spare no effort to support them.
The US has imposed illegal, cruel sanctions against the Iranian people and Iran’s IRGC from many years ago and assassinated the late General Qasem Soleimani during Trump’s presidency, Khatibzadeh added.
The Biden administration, despite his initial deceptive comments, has kept up the very failed policy, the spokesman said, adding that the recent listing was another indication of the US government’s ill will towards the Iranian people and the continuation of abject maximum pressure policy.
The US unilateral sanctions contribute clear violation of international law, as stated in the recent statement of the UN special rapporteur, and have no objective other than imposing pain and suffering to the Iranian people and make chaos in the region, Khatibzadeh noted.
Such acts have no impact on the determination of the Iranian people and government to pursue their lofty goals, including annihilation of terrorism in the region, he underlined.
He noted that the Islamic Republic of Iran reserves the right to proportionately counter such measure in compliance with the international law principles.
