Foreign Minister Zarif remarked that “if these days you see that the Europeans are getting a little closer to the U.S. and becoming its allies, it's not because they saw us in a weak spot, but because they have failed to withstand the U.S.”. He continued that “for the past five months, Europe has been trying to give us credit in return for the sale of the Iranian crude oil to make the country stay in the JCPOA, but it has not been able to do even this little job because it is not even allowed by its master to spend its own money for its own security”.
