“Macron met with Trump during the G7 meeting, where the U.S. side showed some flexibility in the licensing of Iranian oil sales,” he said.
“This is a breach in the U.S. maximum pressure policy, and a success for Iran’s policy of maximum resistance,” he said.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif referred to US complains against Iran، saying Iran will sell its oil to all buyers.
"U.S. denied us means of defense: We built missiles and U.S. complains," Zarif tweeted on Saturday.
He added: "U.S. denied us nuclear fuel: We made it and U.S. complains."
"Now U.S. engages in piracy and threats to prevent Iran from selling oil to traditional customers," Zarif noted.
He urged U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to stop nagging, adding: "We will sell oil to any and all buyers." ■
