Anti-Iran Summit In Poland Shows U.S. Frustration
TEHRAN (IFP) - The governor of Iran’s Central Bank says the US’ plan to organize an anti-Iran conference in Warsaw signals Washington’s frustration with its previous anti-Iran plots.
In a post on his Instagram account on Sunday, Abdolnasser Hemmati said the US has started a new round of psychological war against the Iranian nation, pointing to the US bid to hold an anti-Iran meeting in Poland next month and a separate warning Washington would not renew exemptions from anti-Iran oil sanctions.
Hemmati said the latest oil threat comes following futile US efforts to convince countries to cut down to zero their purchase of Iran’s oil, which forced the country to grudgingly issue oil exemptions for eight countries.
The CBI governor said the latest moves are designed to weaken Iran’s currency, and the central bank will do its best to counter them.
Hemmati said Iran has started supplying currency from India, South Korea and China and it has also moved to broaden trade with Turkey, Iraq and other neighbors.
These measures, along with the CBI’s significant currency reserves, will allow it to control the currency market, he said.
Iran’s national currency had plunged in recent months, reaching to a maximum of around 200,000 against each dollar in the free market.
