Iran says waiting for EU package of proposals to become operational

Tehran, Iran is waiting for the European countries' package of proposals to become operational, deputy foreign minister for political affairs said.

Iran expects the European countries to provide operational solutions for the implementation of their package of proposals before the re-imposition of the US sanctions which is expected to happen in August and November, respectively, Seyyed Abbas Araqchi said in an interview with Al-Alam News Network on Monday.

He said that if Iran will not be able to export its oil, others will not be able to sell their oil either.

Hormuz strait is not Iran's only option, the deputy foreign minister added.

US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington would pull out of Iran nuclear deal and re-impose nuclear sanctions on Iran.

This is while most world powers, including Russia, China, and the European Union have repeatedly stressed that keeping the deal is in the interest of the world peace and security.
