Kharrazi: EU’s faster implementation of INSTEX may dissipate Iran’s distrust

MNA – The head of Iran’s Foreign Policy Strategic Council Kamal Kharrazi said Tue. that Europe’s faster implementation of its trade mechanism for Iran (INSTEX) may dissipate the Iranian nation’s current distrust.

Kamal Kharrazi, head of Iran’s Foreign Policy Strategic Council, held talks on Tuesday with a visiting French delegation from Institut Montaigne, a pioneering independent think tank dedicated to public policy in France and Europe.

During the meeting, Kharrazi maintained that the West’s pressure policy has made Iran severely sensitive about FATF-related issues.

“Europe’s approach toward the JCPOA (Iran nuclear deal) has further exacerbated the sensitivities, and resulted in Iranian public opinion’s distrust toward Europe,” Kharrazi stressed.

He further stressed that Europe’s faster implementation of its trade mechanism for Iran, known as INSTEX, may change the current atmosphere against Europe for the better.
