New sanctions on Iran’s oil industry a “steel claw”

Friday, 2 August 2013

Chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Ala’eddin Borujerdi has criticized the United States for approving a bill imposing new sanctions on Iran’s oil industry, calling it a  ”steel claw” behind velvet glove.” He added that the bill vindicated Khamenei’s view that the Americans were “untrustworthy.” Borujerdi said that the move was “in contrast” to a letter written by 130 members of Congress to the White House asking for a softer approach towards Iran. “This is a sign of political chaos and serious difference in view among the officials and members of the US Congress…while all the countries around the world have supported recent political developments in Iran and more than 40 countries are set to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the president-elect, this unilateral move (new sanction bill) is indicative of the principle of distrust of this country.” Borujerdi stressed that Iran would wait to see whether US President Barack Obama would sign the bill or not. ”
