US has no right to intervene in legal transactions between independent states, said Iranian president Hassan Rouhani.
“Americans seek to intervene in a normal oil trade between two friend countries while this has nothing to do with them,” Mehr reported quoting Rouhani.
His remarks came Wednesday while speaking in a cabinet meeting talking about the arrival of three of the five Iranian fuel tankers in Venezuela.
According to him, the unity of all Iranian officials and bodies is the key to protecting national interests.
“If there was no unity among the government, other branches, and armed forces, Americans could be successful in their aggression and we would see another Gibraltar incident in the Caribbean,” he said referring to the illegal seizure of Adrian Darya (Grace 1) oil tanker by the UK in July 2019.
The United States criticized supplies because both OPEC countries are under sanctions. Earlier this month, a US spokesman said president Donald Trump’s administration is considering retaliatory measures, prompting the Iranian government to warn Washington against military action.
