US Has ‘Addiction To Sanctions’, Says Iran

"Now an "Action Group" dreams of doing the same through pressure, misinformation and demagoguery".

Esproenko International's PR manager Carlos Toledo explained that the company had started working with Iran in 2013, "when sanctions on the Islamic Republic were imposed by all sides, namely, the European Union and the United States". The Western-backed shah was toppled in Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution.

As Iran marks the anniversary of the notorious USA - and UK-engineered coup, observers say Washington is still pursuing the policy of "regime change" against the Islamic Republic. "Never again", Zarif tweeted. "This is to protect American oil and Israel", said Mohammad Ghaderi, chief editor at Tehran Times.

Washington has withdrawn from a deal that had lifted sanctions on Tehran in return for curbs on its nuclear program.

The US State Department on Thursday announced the creation of the IAG to execute the administration's Iran strategy and pressure the country to change its behaviour.

The group will be led by Brian Hook, who is now the State Department's director of policy planning.

It was Zarif's first interview with Western media since US President Donald Trump walked out of the 2015 nuclear deal in May, leading Washington to reimpose sanctions earlier this month.

Iran's first vice-president Eshaq Jahangiri said that the government is ready to continuously reform its economic policies so as to promote the strong points and remove the weak points.

At least 2 teams have expressed interest in trading for Teddy Bridgewater
According to Manish Mehta at The NY Daily News, two teams have expressed interest in trading for Bridgewater. The Daily News reports the Jets have yet to receive a concrete offer for the former first-round pick.

Mr Zarif did not commit to Iran signing a new nuclear deal with the U.S. and said the possibility of a new deal is dependent on President Trump and whether he can prove he is a "reliable partner".

"This (Iran Action Group) sounds more like a game and psychological warfare that the warmonger ruling team of the U.S. is playing", the spokesman said.

Zarif said European governments had put forward proposals to maintain oil and banking ties.

"With the dark track record of the August 19 coup and setting up a vassal dictatorship, how do you dare to talk about freedom for the Iranian nation?" he said, addressing US leaders.

"Now that you have pitted terrorists against the region with your weapons, how do you dare to speak about regional and worldwide security?" he continued.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei last week rejected Trump's offer of talks.
