US Congress after creating discomfort about Iran ties: Zarif

Tehran, July 19, IRNA The US Congress by adopting anti-Iranian measures, is trying to create discomfort among those countries that want to engage with Iran following the implementation of the JCPOA, Says Iran's foreign minister.

The US Congress is trying to persuade the world that their engagement with the Islamic Republic is going to be costly, Mohammad Javad Zarif said briefing members of the Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Commission on Tuesday.

But the fact is that the bills approved by the Congress in the United States should yet to be approved by the Senate, Zarif said.

Only then, US President Barack Obama is responsible to veto the bills against Iran, in accordance to the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action, Iran's top diplomat said.

The adoptation of the anti-Iranian bills are just a propaganda action, aimed at creating discomfort among countries willing to reestablish ties with Iran.

But our policy will be standing against the anti-Iranian psychological atmosphere, trying to demonstrate that the opposite is true and engagement with Iran is not going to be costly, the foreign minister said.
