Anti-Iran Sum­mit In Poland Shows U.S. Frus­tra­tion

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

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.
