Iran Not to Be Cap­tive of U.S. Pres­sure

Iran News - - FRONTPAGE -

TEHRAN (IRNA) - The spokesman of Ira­nian for­eign min­istry says that the United States is try­ing to pre­vent Ira­nian eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion by set­ting up head­quar­ters and groups in dif­fer­ent parts of the world, es­pe­cially in neigh­bor­ing coun­tries, but Iran is sim­ply pass­ing through this pe­riod with care­ful man­age­ment and sys­tem­atic lead­er­ship.

Bahram Qasemi at a con­fer­ence of man­agers, ed­i­tors and heads of cen­ters and of­fices of the Is­lamic Re­pub­lic News Agency (IRNA) un­der­lined, ‘It’s not that we can’t pass the sit­u­a­tion or are cap­tured of the US mea­sures. They will be re­gret­ful sooner or later; we have many fa­cil­i­ties that can eas­ily pass through this pe­riod by care­ful and sys­tem­atic man­age­ment.’

He went on to say that the for­eign pol­icy is con­tin­u­a­tion of do­mes­tic pol­icy and a de­sir­able for­eign pol­icy can­not be achieved with­out a clear pol­icy in the in­ter­nal do­main, not­ing the speed and un­pre­dictabil­ity are two of the tran­sit­ing con­di­tions of the world to­day.

The spokesman for Ira­nian for­eign min­istry said, ‘With our nu­clear agree­ment, we came to an un­der­stand­ing called JCPOA which played a ma­jor role for the Is­lamic Re­pub­lic of Iran in re­gional and global equa­tions, but the trend of de­vel­op­ments in the re­gion and the emer­gence of Trump and an avarice and one-sided na­ture, even­tu­ally forced the US to exit from nu­clear agree­ment and re­store the sanc­tions.’

Qasemi pointed out that ne­go­ti­a­tions are un­der­way with the Euro­pean Union for meet­ing Iran’s eco­nomic in­ter­ests from the JCPOA, say­ing, ‘It is thought that we can de­velop so­lu­tions in the short term, but that these so­lu­tions have not yet been com­pleted for dif­fer­ent rea­sons, in­clud­ing the com­plex­i­ties of de­ci­sion - mak­ing within the Euro­pean Union. Of course, the Amer­i­can pres­sure on Europe was very heavy and tried the mech­a­nism not to take shape.
