Member of Iranian Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi slammed Europe over delay in trade mechanism with Iran dubbed “Special-Purpose Vehicle.”
He warned that such delay will help Iran to strengthen its ties with China and Russia.
Under such circumstances, Iran’s relation with countries including China and Russia will be expanded, Boroujerdi said according to Mehr news agency.
“European companies are the major losers in this regard.”
He pointed to the prolongation of time for implementing the ‘SPV’ and added, “up to the present time, European countries could not show their sovereignty with regard to the US pressures in this respect.”
Elsewhere in his remarks, Boroujerdi said, “in the course of 40 years since the glorious victory anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, Islamic Republic of Iran has proved that it can settle problems especially in sanctions period and can manage its national interests appropriately.”
He emphasized, “once European countries could not resist against US pressures, European companies will be the main losers in this regard, for, Iran’s relations with China and Russia would be strengthened.”
