McMaster’s Remarks Part of Iranophobia Campaign McMaster’s Remarks Part of Iranophobia Campaign

Iran's Foreign Ministry says recent anti-Iran remarks by US National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster are a threat issued to other countries and against Iran's nuclear deal. While addressing the 54th Munich Security Conference on Saturday, McMaster called on US allies to halt trade with Iran over its alleged meddling in regional affairs. In response, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi stressed that the remarks were all part of the US failing Iranophobic policies, Press TV reported.

"The repeating of such remarks shows the continuity of the their pointless Iranophobic policies," which are aimed at preventing Iran from fully utilizing the benefits of the nuclear deal, known officially as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Qasemi noted that the surge in foreign investment in Iran following the implementation of the JCPOA has alarmed the United States.

  Washington's Unreliability  

The US administration's continued failures throughout the world have forced them to become even more unreliable, Qasemi added.

He noted that such remarks only show that the US is adamant on halting the successful implementation of JCPOA.

"We deem such comments by this American official to be a threat to other countries, and not only against the framework of the JCPOA, but also in violation of international rights and regulations by the US government," he said.

The multilateral agreement between Iran and P5+1, namely the US, the UK, France, China, Russia plus Germany, removes all nuclear-related sanctions against Iran in exchange for certain limitations on its peaceful nuclear program.

Earlier in the day, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani had reiterated the Islamic Republic's full compliance with the 2015 nuclear agreement, stressing that the United States would undoubtedly regret any violation of the deal.

"If the US violates this pact, we will see that it will regret it. Do not doubt this", he said.
