  • Iran says its economy not at 'dead end' from U.S. sanctions

With the same objectives, he added, Washington has created a task force which dreams of repeating that history through pressure, disinformation and demagoguery.

Accusing Iran of unleashing a "torrent of violence and destabilizing behavior against the United States, our allies, our partners and, indeed, the Iranian people themselves", Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on August 16 announced the creation of the Iran Action Group, saying it will drive US policy in Washington and overseas.

In 1953, The United States and Britain orchestrated the removal of Mossadegh after he acted to nationalise Iran's oil industry, restoring to power Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi. The US has been fairly open about spreading misinformation against Iran in trying to organize protests against the government, and in recent weeks has presented those protests as proof the Iranian government needs to make radical changes.

In a tweet, Trump said the deal was a "horrible one-sided deal that should never, ever been made".

On Thursday, the US State Department formed an Iran Action Group aimed at consolidating and intensifying the country's efforts targeting the Islamic Republic.

Now that Washington has tried to stifle the Iranian economy and has warned European and USA companies against conducting trade with Tehran, Esproenko International perceives all this as a new opportunity, according to Toldeo.

Ali Larijani, Iran's speaker of parliament, said on Sunday the 1953 coup was an indication that the United States can not be trusted.

"It is a critical moment for our economy, but we are not in a dead end", Vice President Eshagh Jahangiri was quoted as saying by the state news agency IRNA.

Trump has called on Iran to negotiate a new deal that would entirely rid Iran of nuclear weapons capability and also curb its development of ballistic missiles, which has been a point of contention between Tehran and Washington for years.

"Americans are imposing sanctions but they claim they are supporting freedom, human rights, and global and regional security", Larijani said. "Their strategy on Iran entails regime change, and that's been instituted", he told Press TV.
