Iranian MPs condemn US top negotiator’s insulting remarks

TEHRAN (FNA)- Members of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission lashed out at US Undersecretary of State and top negotiator Wendy Sherman for her insulting remarks against the Iranian people.

Commission Rapporteur Seyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini said the condemnation was expressed at the Tuesday meeting of the Commission.

“Repetition of such rhetoric by the US officials will lead to the Iranian nation and government’s distrust of the US,” he pointed out.

Wendy Sherman, the State Department’s third-ranking official, told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that officials were looking for ways Iran could “build confidence” and provide time for diplomacy to work. “We know that deception is part of the DNA” in Iran, she claimed.

In relevant comments on Monday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araqchi also asked the US not to put hurdles on the path of the Iran-powers talks.
