Minister of Turkey repudiates U.S. sanctions against Iran

Turkey's foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu criticized the reactivation of the sanctions imposed by the United States in Iran to block Iranian trade relations in the oil and gas sector. The Chancellor reiterated that Turkey rejects the U.S. "maximum pressure" policy and reaffirmed that it will remain importing Tehran oil.

"U.S. embargoes against Iran are damaging the entire Middle East region," Cavusoglu said during the 11th Conference of ambassadors in Turkey.  Still according to the minister, Iran is a country that acts as a stabilizer in the region, particularly due to its work in Syria, where it advised the armed forces against terrorism and worked to solve the political crisis in the country.

Tensions between Washington and Tehran have increased since the U.S. withdrew, in 2018, from the Nuclear agreement with Iran signed since 2015, and began to impose economic sanctions on the Iranian country in order to hinder Tehran's global trade relations with other countries.
