Iran: US Has No Goodwill Signs in Selective Removal of Sanctions
By Staff- Agencies
Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Saeed Khatibzadeh, warned that the US' selective removal of some entities from its sanctions is not viewed as a sign of "goodwill" from Washington.
Khatibzadeh tweeted on Friday that US President Joe Biden should stop following in the footsteps of his predecessor Donald Trump by "effectively and verifiably removing sanctions" targeting the Islamic Republic.
His comments came a day after the US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control [OFAC] announced in a statement that it had dropped sanctions on three former National Iranian Oil Company officials and two companies that previously “traded” Iranian petrochemicals. It said the former officials were removed from US blacklists as they were no longer affiliated with the entities already on US sanctions list.
However, the statement added that the Treasury had imposed new sanctions on several entities it said is financially helping Yemen's Ansarullah revolutionary movement that has been defending the country against Saudi-led aggression since 2015.
