Washington’s self-professed solidarity with Iranians protesting against rising fuel costs cannot be taken seriously since US sanctions have caused so much suffering in the Islamic Republic, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said.

“The regime that imposes coercive economic actions and bars delivery of food and drugs to the elderly and patients, can never claim that it’s supporting the Iranian nation,” Zarif noted on Tuesday, according to Iran’s semi-official IRNA news agency.

He added that European nations that fail to challenge Washington’s regime change posturing against Tehran will be “responsible for their dangerous acts.”
