Zarif: International relations is not a beauty pageant

Tehran, The foreign minister International tweeted Monday 'International relations is not a beauty pageant with tired cliches about a desire for world peace. And it is not the first time that a warmonger claims he is waging war for 'WORLD PEACE'.

'Tantrums and CAPPED TEWEETS won't change the fact that the world is sick and tied of US unilateralism. Stopping US trade and killing 100k US jobs is fine with us, but the world won't follow impulsive tweeted diktats. Just as EU, Russia, China and dozens of our other trading partners,' Mohammad Javad Zarif said in his tweet.

China, Russia and the European Union have announced that they would not abide by US anti-Iran sanctions.

Meanwhile, a special adviser to the 28-country bloc's top diplomat has warned that European firms that stop doing business with Iran because of re-imposed US sanctions could in turn be sanctioned by the EU.

If EU companies abide by US secondary sanctions they will, in turn, be sanctioned by the EU,' Nathalie Tocci, an aide to EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, said.
