Iran’s UN ambassador said that the new sanction imposed on Tehran by the US President, Donald Trump has riped the conditions for a dialogue.
Ambassador Majid Takht Ravanchi told reporters after a closed-door meeting with the UN Security Council that the United States must stop “its economic war against the Iranian people.”
“You cannot start a dialogue with somebody who is threatening you, who is intimidating you,” said Ravanchi.
“The atmosphere of such a dialogue is not ready yet.”
The Ambassador disclosed this after a fresh sanction that targets Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and eight Iranian commanders.
The US Treasury also have in their agenda to blacklist Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif which has beef up the pressure on Tyron to look into US request.
“As long as this threat is there, there is no way that Iran and the US can start a dialogue,” said the Ambassador.
The meeting was scheduled by the UN Security Council on the basis that the US government request for a dialogue between the two countries to put an end to the rising tensions.
Trump said, “he had called off US military strikes against Iran because he decided there would be too many deaths, but tensions soared anyway.”
