Iran’s Foreign Ministry: U.S. losing its allies
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif highlighted the US isolation since it withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal, saying even Washington’s close allies do not follow the US any more.
“Today the US’ closest allies, apart from a few of our neighbors, are no longer aligned with Washington,” the minister said, adding that the US’ withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has perfectly manifested the country's isolation on the global stage.
Zarif added that the U.S. is trying to create a psychological atmosphere” against Iran. "Basically the entire goal is to psychologically affect our nation and to affect the psychological vibe of our trade partners across the globe," the Iranian foreign minister stressed, adding that "the world is not ready to follow the US.”
He noted that the EU has so far lived up to its commitments, but they have to “move beyond words."
“The Europeans say the JCPOA is a security achievement for them. Well, you ought to pay for your security. No one finds security without investment,” Tasnim cited Zarif as saying.
