Iranian Foreign Minster Mohammad Javad Zarif said the United States is 'addicted to sanctions', in a speech to business people and diplomatic officials in Tehran on Sunday. «Their history has the highest record of sanctions against the largest number of countries. It is not only us that Americans sanction. Americans are addicted to sanctions,» Zarif proclaimed. He called on the US «to quit... Еще this addiction of theirs» and lift sanctions on Iran. Zarif also said Iran should take advantage of the recent trade dispute between the European Union and the US. «Now there is some schism between the US and Europe where we can be active. We don't need to act as a bridge between Europe and the US,» Zarif told his audience.
