Turkey: U.S. sanctions against Iran ‘unfair’

November 6, 2018

TEHRAN – The U.S. sanctions against Iran are unfair, Turkish Vice-President Fuat Oktay said, Turkish media reported on Monday.

Oktay said it is not correct to expect that all countries in the world to join the decision of one state acting exclusively by its own interests.

The sanctions will cover the sphere of oil exports. Washington has voiced determination to bring the Iranian oil exports to zero, calling on all its buyers to abandon such purchases.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced in May his country’s withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, and ordered reimposition of sanctions.
