Iran FM: US leaders prisoners to pipe dreams, pressure groups

Iran’s foreign minister says American officials are prisoners to their “pipe dreams” and “corrupt” pressure groups in drawing up their foreign policy agenda, describing this as a sign of Washington’s “bankruptcy.”

Mohammad Javad Zarif was speaking to reporters on Wednesday in reaction to recent remarks by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who unveiled a 12-point list of demands from Iran and threatened the country with the “strongest sanctions in history” if Tehran fails to fulfill them.

Zarif said, “Mr. Pompeo’s remarks were so groundless and bereft of civility and logic that do not warrant an answer.”

He said Pompeo and the other people in charge of the current US administration are prisoners “not only to their fallacious conceptions and pipe dreams, but also prisoners to [what happened in] the past, and worst of all prisoners to corrupt pressure groups.”

“This indicates the bankrupt nature of US foreign policy, which has been put up for rent. Any pressure group that spends more money can lead the foreign policy in the direction of its own choice,” Zarif said. 

íIntl. consensus against US’

The top diplomat further said the US has failed to turn the tide of global opinion against Iran and in favor of itself by spreading lies about the Islamic Republic.


World never accepts US deciding for all: Rouhani
The Iranian president says the United States cannot make decisions for Iran and other independent countries in the world.

“They even use an erroneous term when referring to the Persian Gulf, or prevent the Iranian people from visiting their families in the US, denying them visas,” he noted.

Now that the US has left the nuclear accord, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), they can no longer use their stonewalling tactics in the accordís Joint Commission -- which regularly meets in Vienna, Zarif said.

The Iranian foreign minister asserted that the country sought nothing beyond what it has been allowed under the deal.

The other signatories are to present Iran with “a new package,” he announced, but said its contents are within the boundaries of the agreement and do not include “any other issues.”

Iranian anti-terror missions abroad

Addressing Iran’s military advisory role in Iraq and Syria, Zarif reiterated that Tehran’s presence in those countries is at the request of the governments in Baghdad and Damascus and is solely aimed at countering terrorism.

The presence, he said, would continue as long as those governments would need such help, adding that Iran is the only country in the world that has stepped in to fight terrorism at the host countryís request and has suffered human losses.

Zarif said the advisory support is in the interest of the entire world.

“These terror groups, with which we fought, had disturbed international security. We will keep the support up as long as it is necessary and the regional governments ask us to stay,” he added.
