Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned the US not to threaten Iranians by exerting pressures, saying Iran will continue selling its oil, Trend reported citing IRNA.
“Well we said very clearly that we will continue to sell our oil and we will continue to survive and our people will show to the United States that they cannot deal with Iran through pressure,” Zarif told reporters in New York answering a question regarding recent US act to end waivers to Iran oil exports.
He added “what is important for the international community is to determine for itself whether they want to accept a permanent member of the Security Council telling the international community that they have to violate the resolution of the Security Council otherwise they will be punished because of observing the law.”
“People are threatened openly that they will be punished for observing the rules of law,” he reiterated.
He went to say “this is something that the international community needs to react and we will make our decision based on the reaction of the international community.”
“We have abandoned irrationality coming to this administration at least so we will see how the international community deals with this irrationality,” Zarif noted.
