Iran says U.S. ‘action group’ will fail to overthrow Iranian state

Iranian International Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif stated on Sunday {that a} new Iran Motion Group within the U.S. State Division aimed to overthrow the Islamic Republic, however would fail.

He was talking on the 65th anniversary of a U.S.-backed coup that overthrew a democratically elected Iranian prime minister, an event when anti-American sentiment runs notably excessive within the Islamic Republic.

Evaluating recent U.S. sanctions on Tehran imposed by President Donald Trump with the 1953 coup that ousted nationalist Iranian Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh, Zarif stated Tehran will not let historical past repeat itself.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday named senior coverage adviser Brian Hook as particular consultant for Iran in cost of the Iran Motion Group to co-ordinate Trump’s stress marketing campaign in opposition to the Islamic Republic following Washington’s withdrawal from a world nuclear take care of Tehran.

Zarif tweeted: “65 years in the past immediately, the US overthrew the popularly elected democratic authorities of Dr. Mossadegh, restoring the dictatorship & subjugating Iranians for the subsequent 25 years. Now an ‘Motion Group’ desires of doing the identical by stress, misinformation & demagoguery. By no means once more.”

The USA and Britain orchestrated the removing of Mossadegh after he acted to nationalise Iran’s oil trade, restoring to energy Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi. The Western-backed shah was toppled in Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani stated the coup was the perfect historic lesson that People can’t be trusted.

“How dare you speak concerning the freedom of the Iranian nation together with your darkish file of the Aug. 19 coup, and the appointment of a puppet totalitarian regime,” Larijani was quoted as saying by state information company IRNA, referring to the shah’s rule.

“People are imposing sanctions however they declare they’re supporting freedom, human rights, and world and regional safety,” Larijani stated.

The 1953 Anglo-American coup stays an open wound in Iran’s relations with the West. In March 2000, then-U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright turned the primary senior American official to acknowledge the American function within the coup, calling it “a setback for Iran’s political growth.”

Washington and Tehran have had no diplomatic relations since the shah’s fall. A long time of hostility eased considerably with the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and then-U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration and 5 different world powers. However excessive tensions resumed after Trump pulled Washington out of the deal, calling it flawed in Iran’s favour.
