(Persia Digest) – The Iranian Foreign Minister has responded to the US cancelling all exemptions for clients of Iranian oil.
Javad Zarif tweeted: “Escalating #EconomicTERRORISM against Iranians exposes panic & desperation of US regime—and chronic failures of its client co-conspirators. REAL news, @realdonaldtrump: Inheritors of ancient Persian civilization don't base strategy on "advice" of foreigners—let alone Americans.”
Persia Digest (PD) reports that in this tweet Zarif was referring to Donald Trump’s tweet of yesterday hours after he announced his decision not to grant exemptions to clients of Iranian oil, saying that former Secretary of State, John Kerry, and his advisors who helped move the US towards a very bad deal, give Iran very bad counsel.
On Monday, the Trump Administration announced that exemptions will no longer be granted to buyers of Iranian oil and countries working with Iran in ten days’ from now will be sanctioned by the US. Trump took this decision in order to zero Iran’s oil sales and force this country into a behavior approved by him. He withdrew from the Iran deal last May and reinstated sanctions on Iran which had been lifted under the 2015 JCOPA nuclear deal.
