“Proud to Be Targeted by US Sanctions”

Addressing a ceremony to support flood-hit people in Lorestan province, he lashed out at US administration over blocking the aid of Iranian expatriates through sanctions.   “Surely, what we are proud of, belongs to the people. All honors, resistance and progress have been achieved by the people,” he said as quoted by IRNA news agency on Saturday.   He hailed national resolve of the Iranians to withstand the US arbitrary sanctions.   “We failed to serve the people as they deserve,” he said, noting that that’s the people who tolerated pressures to safeguard the country.   “It was the people who backed us to be able to hold talks,” he said.   “We are indebted to the people, as we benefited from the flood because level of water resources had reached alarming level but a group of our countrymen suffered and lost their loved ones and properties,” he said.   Zarif was honored in a ceremony in presence of Tehran Mayor Pirouz Hanachi.
