Zarif: Trump’s New Strategies to Further Isolate US
Local Editor

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the new strategies declared by the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will lead to Washington's greater isolation among the international community.

"In my opinion, the new US strategies against Iran, which were announced by the country's secretary of state, will bring down more isolation on the US," Zarif said on Sunday.

Pompeo said on Monday that Washington would increase the financial pressure on Iran by imposing the "strongest sanctions in history" on the Islamic Republic if Tehran refuses to change the course of its foreign and domestic policy.

Speaking weeks after the United States' pullout from a nuclear agreement that Iran signed with major powers in 2015, Pompeo laid out 12 tough conditions for any "new deal" with Tehran.

The conditions included withdrawal of Iran's military advisors from Syria, who have been helping the country's legitimate government in its anti-terror fight against terrorist outfits, which have been mostly aided and abetted by the US and its Western and regional allies.

Earlier on May 8, US President Donald Trump announced that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA], which was reached between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the US, Britain, France, Russia and China - plus Germany.

Trump also said he would reinstate US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose "the highest level" of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Zarif said Pompeo's conditions "were not based on prudence."

He further noted that there has been an international consensus in support of the negotiations about Iran's nuclear program since the beginning of the talks, noting that only three Arab countries in the Persian Gulf and the Zionist regime currently oppose the JCPOA despite the US withdrawal.
