Araqchi: Iran not sorely disappointed with EU

November 17, 2018

TEHRAN – Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi says Iran has not become completely disappointed with Europe to help counter the effects of U.S. sanctions on Tehran but it has devised several mechanisms for any possible scenario.

On Iran’s possible moves in case the Europeans succumb to U.S. pressure, Araqchi said Tehran has devised all necessary preparations in different sectors and would carry out required measures in due time, IRNA reported on Saturday.

The senior diplomat further said the Americans were threatening Europe with sanctions if it cooperated with Iran, noting, “This is against European countries’ sovereignty.”
