Iran Blasts US for Continued Violation of UN Resolution 2231
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh condemned the new anti-Iran sanctions imposed by the US, and said that the US claims it's ready to return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, while it is still violating the nuclear deal and Resolution 2231.
"This action is another sign of the US government's malice towards the Iranian people that is in continuation of the failed Maximum Pressure Campaign against Iran," Saeed Khatibzadeh said in a statement on Thursday in reaction to newly- imposed sanctions by the US on several Iranian entities who allegedly are involved in developing Iran's missile program.
"It clearly proves the fact that the current US administration, contrary to its claims, uses every opportunity to make baseless accusations and put pressure on the Iranian people," he added.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman further said that while the US claims it's ready to return to JCPOA it continues to blatantly violate the deal and Resolution 2231.
In relevant remarks last week, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian underlined that the US' lack of resolve to remove unlawful sanctions on Iran is the main obstacle on the way of reaching a deal in Vienna talks.
Amir Abdollahian made the remarks in a meeting with visiting EU Deputy Foreign Policy Chief Enrique Mora on Sunday night.
"Iran’s top priority is to benefit from the economic advantages of the removal of sanctions," he added.
