Trump’s policy of ‘maximum pressure’ won’t do any good, Iran

Tehran (HRNW) Iran slammed the United States on Thursday for continuing to follow former president Donald Trump’s policy of applying “maximum pressure”.

“US claims it favours diplomacy; not Trump’s failed policy of ‘maximum pressure’,” Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Twitter.

“Yet (US Secretary of State Antony Blinken) boasts abt (about) blocking Korea from transferring our OWN money to the Swiss Channel — only used for food & meds.”

He said sticking to the same approach will not “yield new results” for the US.

The Iranian foreign minister’s comments came hours after Blinken hinted of the US continuing to oppose the release of Iranian funds worth billions of dollars until Tehran commits to full compliance with a nuclear deal.
