Foreign Minister Javad Zarif meets North Korean counterpart in Tehran

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has said that the world is “sick and tired” of US’ unilateralism and world won’t follow impulsive tweeted diktats. In a show of defiance Zarif also met Ri Yong-ho, his counterpart from North Korea, the country which is also facing US sanctions, on Tuesday in Tehran.

The Iranian foreign minister posted message on his twitter handle:

Earlier in the day US President Donald Trump called the new US sanctions “most biting sanctions ever” and threatened the world nations saying “Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with United States”. He also claimed his action was meant for world peace.

Trump’s warning was apparently addressed to the EU which put into force a law banning companies from complying with US sanctions or court rulings and enabling them to claim compensation for potential damage.

On Monday, European Union Commission, in a statement, announced that it would activate an EU law that would shield European companies that have business times with Iran from US sanctions.

The law of the blocking statute would comprise a set of protective measures and would be the most powerful tool at EU’s disposal as it would ban any European company from complying with US sanctions and would not recognize any court rulings that would enforce American penalties.

Federica Mogherini, the chief of EU foreign policy, even encouraged companies to do more business with Iran despite US sanctions, saying Tehran fulfilled its commitments towards the deal to limit its nuclear program.

European countries had previously opposed re-imposition of US sanctions against Iran saying Tehran should not be punished and it has been so far doing its share of the multilateral Iran nuclear deal signed in 2015 by five permanent members of the Security Council and Germany, known as P5+1.

Press TV eports that apart from opposition from Europe, countries like Turkey, China and India have already made it clear they would not abide by the unilateral sanctions against Iran.

Regarding Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif’s meeting with his North Korean counterpart, Aljazeera’s journalist in Tehran Zein Basravi said that the timing of the meeting is “likely no coincidence”. He said, “Iran wants America to know it has friends everywhere.”
