Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says President Trump’s threat of sanctions against European countries continuing to do business in Iran is “unprecedented,” comparing his behavior to that of a “bully.” He also said it’s “still a possibility” that Iran could restart its nuclear program.
“The United States is asking countries to violate international law, and is telling countries and companies that if they observe the law they’ll be punished,” Zarif told CBS News’ John Dickerson in an interview on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly last week. “This is probably unprecedented, even for a bully, in a town to go to the sheriff’s office and tell them, ‘If you try not to drop people you are going to be punished.'”
The article goes on to state the following:
Mr. Trump has previously threatened that “anyone doing business with Iran will not be doing business with the U.S.” and imposed new sanctions on the country after withdrawing the U.S. from the 2015 nuclear agreement.
“This policy is going to have a backlash. The international community is not going to accept somebody to come and just [give] orders,” the foreign minister said. “We will continue to work with the Europeans. Certainly some European companies have withdrawn from Iran because of the fear of punishment by the United States.”
