Un denies alien ambassador plan, says US would have veto power over Iran’s nuclear program

Iran’s Foreign Ministry denounced the U.S. decision to end diplomatic relations with Qatar, saying that it is a violation of international law.

Qatar has been supporting the Arab Muslim kingdom of Bahrain예스카지노 against its domestic opposition, particularly when it comes to maintaining its role as a custodian of Islamic law.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sent the letter Tuesday with the aim of ending the “frozen” relationship between Qatar and Iran, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said at a briefing Thursday.

It is the first time an Iranian foreign ministry representative has directly spoke바카라사이트n out against Washington, as the American decision came as Tillerson met with top military officials for meetings on Iran’s nuclear program.

“This is an important step to put an end to the frozen relationship,” Nauert said, referring to the freeze-out between Qatar and its former longtime ally.

“Qatar’s support of the Bahraini government has never crossed any of our boundaries and is consistent with its status as a sovereign state,” Nauert said. “We have no intentions of reopening ties with Qatar.”

Qatar’s ambassador to Washington has previously told The Wall Street Journal that “there is a sense that U.S. policies were influenced by Qatari politics and its interference in Bahrain’s internal affairs.”

But he denied such allegations Thursday.

Qatar’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson in Washington, Zainab Ahmed Ali, told reporters the U.S. decision would “reversibly damage the international cooperation we have in many important areas like our relationship with Iran, our relations with Saudi Arabia and Pakistan and other parts of the region.”

Nauert defended the move, saying: “We we바카라사이트lcome the change of heart, and we look forward to continuing that interaction with the Americans and the United Kingdom.”
