Congress Anti-Iran Measure Criticized

The deputy chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee criticized the US Congress for approving a measure to cut the state of Mississippi’s financial ties to Iran, saying the move indicated that the United States is not “trustworthy”.    
US House and Senate members this week passed the Iran Divestment Act, which prohibits Mississippi from doing business with entities having certain financial investments in Iran, according to the Clarion-Ledger newspaper.
“The measure by the senators indicted once again that the Americans are in no way trustworthy and such moves and approaches certainly affirm the Iranian people’s skeptical attitude toward the officials of this country,” Mansour Haqiqatpour told ICANA on Friday.
He also said, “The US officials’ action goes against the spirit of the agreement (referring to an interim nuclear deal Iran signed with the major powers in November 2013) and negotiations between Iran and this country.”
