TEHRAN – Iranian authorities will in no way accept the Europeans’ conditions for implementing INSTEX, a European financial channel for trade with Iran, a lawmaker has said.

Abolfazl Hassan-Beigi, a member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, was referring to the European Council’s recent statement which asked Iran to join the FATF before INSTEX takes force.

Hassan-Beigi also said Iranian officials should not be optimistic about the European Union’s promises. “Instead, we should look for the route to progress within the country.”

“European countries have always been under the Americans’ domination and do have a will of their own,” he asserted, Tasnim reported.
