Zarif accused Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE of dragging the United States into a conflict with US National Security Advisor John Bolton.
Indicating whether the group is trying to carry out a government change in Iran, Zarif said.
They were all interested in dragging the United States into a conflict. I do not believe President Trump wants to do this, and I believe that President Trump has promised a campaign not to bring the US into another war.
“However, I believe that President Trump’s intention to suppress the maximum pressure policy to be put under pressure to discredit Iran is doomed to failure,” he said.
Earlier this week, the White House targeted Iran’s oil industry and ended with a six-month waiver and allowed Tehran’s top eight Asian customers to continue to make a limited amount of imports.
Iran has threatened its oil buyers with sanctions if Washington could not halt its purchases until May 1, with a move that rapidly sent global crude prices to its highest levels since last November.
The White House said the decision was aimed at “zeroing Iran’s oil exports” and rejecting the government as a “main source of income”.
The leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei emphasized that the US administration will not give any ground to Iran’s hostile attempts to prevent oil sales and will export the country ’as much raw as it needs and wants.
The sanctions were lifted as part of the 2015 multilateral nuclear agreement with Iran but renewed one year after US President Donald Trump left the landmark agreement, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPOA).
