US continues “hostility” towards Iran: expert
Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 18
By Mehdi Sepahvand, Khalid Kazimov – Trend:
The US House of Representatives’ recent vote baring the sale of commercial Boeing and Airbus planes to Iran once again proves that the Islamic Republic cannot trust the US, an Iranian political expert believes.
Kamal Sajjadi, a spokesman for the Front of Followers of the Line of the Imam and the Leader, has told Trend that the move demonstrates the US’ will to continue its hostility towards Iran.
The House of Representatives on Tuesday voted 419 to one for a 10-year reauthorization of the Iran Sanctions Act, or ISA, a law first adopted in 1996 to punish investments in Iran's energy industry and deter Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons.
Sajjadi also touched upon the impact of the outcome of the US presidential election on ties with Iran, forecasting that the relations between the two countries are unlikely to experience a major change during Donald Trump’s term in office.
