Zarif thanks Turkey for refusing to support US sanctions against Iran


Baku, Azerbaijan, April 17

By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:

Tehran is pleased with Ankara’s position on the US sanctions against Iran and Iran is grateful to Turkey for such support, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said.

Zarif made the remarks in Ankara during a joint press-conference with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu.

“Turkey has once again proved that its relations with Iran are very important and are aimed at the welfare of the two peoples,” Zarif added, Trend reports on April 17.

Zarif paid a working visit to Turkey’s Ankara city.

The US other sanctions against Iran came into force on November 5, 2018. The sanctions covered the oil export. Washington intends to bring the export of Iranian oil to zero, calling on all its buyers to abandon such purchases.

US President Donald Trump announced in May 2018 that Washington was withdrawing from an agreement on a nuclear program with Iran.

He also spoke about the restoration of all sanctions against Iran, including secondary ones, that is, against other countries doing business with Iran. The US has re-imposed some sanctions against Iran since August 7, 2018.
