(Persia Digest) – The Spokesperson for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has severely criticized the Head of the Iran Action Group at the US Department of State, Brian Hook, for his latest remarks against Tehran, calling him a man suffering from the chronic illness of "Iran abuse".
Bahram Ghasemi added: “Hook’s remarks show his lack of understanding of the unstable, declining US position in the world.”
Persia Digest (PD) reports that on Wednesday in an interview with Sky News, Brian Hook stated that the US will not be renewing sanction waivers for any countries to trade with Iran and that Washington will impose penalties on anyone who circumvents these.

Ghasemi said that this was a repeat performance of Hook’s vindictive feelings towards the Iranian people and efforts by the US Administration to sustain and increase sanction pressures against them.
The Spokesperson for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs continued: “Brian Hooke needs to know that in today's world, the United States can no longer impose all its ill-fated demands against humanity, and the time for dictating its selfish desires to other countries has long passed.”

► Zarif: US supports butchers and extremists
Ghasemi added: “The behavior and speeches of Mr Hook and the US Administration will surely face a court as big as the world, witnessed by all libertarians and people of fair consciences to answer for their crimes against humanity and all the vindictive practices and damages inflicted on brave Iranians.”
Persia Digest (PD) reports that the American President must make a decision on renewing sanction waivers for Iranian oil for eight countries by the first week in May.
