Iran condemns US sanctions against CBI governor

Tehran, May 16, IRNA – The world reactions to the US withdrawal from the JCPOA showed their defeat and new sanctions imposed on Iran and putting Iran's Central Bank chief's name aims at compensating for that, said the spokesman of the Iranian foreign ministry on Wednesday.

'Iran considers the inappropriate policy and move as the continuation of the unwise behavior and inimical policies of the US against Iranian people, which has been in progress for the past few decades in different forms,' said Bahram Qasemi.

Qasemi said, 'Not only will such vindictive policies have no achievement for the US, but they will make the Iranian government and people more determined, patient and powerful to counter the US government actions.'

He added that announcing new sanctions against Iran and putting the name of the head of the Iranian Central Bank in the sanctions list shows that the US has not reached its predetermined anti-Iranian goals.

'The US government is now trying to influence other signatories to the deal through such destructive decisions, after it quit the deal unilaterally, which was a big mistake,' Qasemi said.

Referring to the excessive demand of the US and the use of different techniques to bully others and raise its inappropriate expectations from others, he said that the world reactions to the US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) clearly showed that the decision that was unwise, illogical and contrary to all the international rules and regulations.

'Such decision severely damaged the reputation of the US and will result in its isolation,' Qasemi added.

He also said that the US decision proved that the people of Iran have always been right to believe that the US in not trustable.
