Iran: US sanctions are 'economic terrorism'

  • Washington has reimposed an oil embargo and other damaging sanctions on Iran since pulling out in May from a landmark 2015 nuclear deal. — File

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday said United States sanctions were "economic terrorism", and would harm efforts to fight terror and drug-smuggling, as well as lead to an increase in the number of asylum seekers.

The "illegal U.S. sanctions" are "a form of economic terrorism", Rouhani said, as cited by Iranian media.

It comes a month after President Trump reimposed an embargo on Iran's vital oil industry as well as shipping and banks after pulling the United States out of the 2015 nuclear agreement in May, calling it the "worst deal ever".

"America's withdrawal from the (nuclear accord) is undoubtedly a clear example of economic terrorism", Rouhani told a meeting of heads of parliaments of China, Russia, and four other countries. Since the 1980s, Iran has said repeatedly it would blockade the Gulf in response to worldwide pressure but has never carried out the threat.

"We are facing an all-out assault which is not only threatening our independence and identity but also is bent on breaking our longstanding ties", he said.

Rouhani drew parallels with the sanctions and other pressure faced by the countries attending the conference. Sources said Indian refiners will make rupee payments in a UCO Bank account of the National Iranian Oil Co (NIOC).

"When they put pressure on China's trade, we are all harmed. Any time they threaten Russian Federation, we too consider our security to be endangered", he said.

"When they impose sanctions on Iran, they deprive all of us of the benefits of global trade, energy security and sustainable development".

I warn those who impose sanctions that if Iran's ability to fight drugs and terrorism are affected. you will not be safe from a deluge of drugs, asylum seekers, bombs and terrorism.

Speaking at a security-themed conference on Saturday, the president noted that the sanctions may backfire since they undermine Tehran's own efforts to fight drug trafficking and terrorist attacks.

"We are here to say that we don't intend to tolerate such insolence". The European Union is working on a payment system, known as the "special objective vehicle", to keep money flowing into Iran, but has struggled to find a host since many countries fear repercussions from the Trump administration.
