To strangle the Iranian economy, Trump recognized that his administration had slammed the “strongest penalties” against Iran that had never been seen in history.
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said, in an interview with CNN broadcast on September 24, that sanctions are conflicting.
“The sanctions are conflicting. Because in conflict, we select army objectives. Civilians are the objectives of sanctions. So, this is fighting. It’s more than just war, “he said.
President Hassan Rouhani said in June that US sanctions are instances of “felony against humanity and financial terrorism” because they target ordinary people’s “life and wants.”
“we should not say it that the United States has placed sanctions on us because they are not sanctions. They are crimes against humanity. They could be called sanctions if they target some of our delicate sectors, but they are crimes against humanity and economic terrorism when they target people’s life and requires, “he said.
