Iran was hit hard whenever it trusted Americans: ex-diplomat

February 3, 2019

TEHRAN – Sadeq Kharrazi, a former Iranian diplomat, believes whenever Iran trusted the Americans it suffered a severe blow, ISNA reported on Sunday.

He said the United States has harmed Iran in different ways, including through sanctions and supporting Iraq when it waged a war against Iran back in the 1980s.

Kharrazi, who was Iran’s ambassador to France from 2002 to 2006, also said since the Islamic Revolution, Iran has been pursuing a confidence building approach in its foreign policy with the aim of expanding relations with other countries.

“Our foreign policy has always been based on common sense and saying otherwise is ahistorical,” he concluded.
