Collor de Mello says Brazil to remain on Iran’s side along with other BRICS members

TEHRAN – By pulling out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and re-imposing sanctions against Tehran, U.S. President Trump was after causing turmoil, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has said. 

Larijani made the remarks in Tehran on Saturday during a meeting with Fernando Affonso Collor de Mello, a senior Brazilian senator who served as the 32nd president of Brazil from 1990 to 1992.

The world is facing growing uncertainty because of Trump’s behavior, he said, adding, “Trump’s measures have concerned Europeans by his economic war, Russians by threatening to withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), and the world by pulling out of the Paris climate agreement and the [2015 Iran] nuclear deal,” Tasnim reported.

The U.S. president is not familiar with history and needs to be given advice, the top Iranian lawmaker suggested.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Larijani lauded Brazil for its supportive stances towards Iran on the nuclear deal, saying Tehran and Brasilia could expand trade, industrial, agricultural and banking relations.

For his part, the visiting Brazilian senator voiced his country’s willingness to boost ties with Iran.

Collor de Mello underlined that Brazil, together with other BRICS nations – including Russia, India, China and South Africa – stands with Iran against Trump, who has no respect for international regulations.

The world should not remain silent to bullies like Trump, he added, calling on the United Nations to take more serious measures against U.S. policies.
