He mentioned that tensions rose when US President Donald Trump “didn’t like the legacy of his predecessor”.
Araghchi noted that Iran has not been the guilty side in the recent tensions because the Europeans couldn’t live up to their promises of safeguarding Iran’s interests in insurance, maritime navigation and other issues.
He stressed that the US sanctions have failed to yield the desired results. ■
