Iran’s Ambassador to UN Calls on US to Stop Economic War on Iran

Iran’s Ambassador to the United Nations Majid Takht Ravanchi called on Washington to stop its “economic war” on the Iranian nation after US President Donald Trump imposed new sanctions on Tehran.

Takht Ravanchi told reporters following a Security Council meeting that the United States must stop “its economic war against the Iranian people”.

“You cannot start a dialogue with somebody who is threatening you, who is intimidating you,” he said, adding “the atmosphere of such a dialogue is not ready yet.”

He continued “as long as this threat is there, there is no way that Iran and the US can start a dialogue,” renewing an appeal for talks with regional countries on improving security and said he had asked the United Nations to play a role in promoting such a forum.
