MOSCOW, December 17. /TASS/. The countries that these days have been exerting efforts to push down the price of oil expose themselves to major risks, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollohian told a news conference at TASS on Wednesday.
“Sanctions are an aggressive method in the system of international relations,” the diplomat said. “But those who take them and who connive with them must be aware of the consequences for themselves. The sanctions may eventually have a boomerang effect.”
Abdollohian believes that there may follow a “professional response,” adding that sanctions “always hit the people of this or that country.” He is certain that the countries that have been pushing the price of oil down “jeopardize themselves.”
Sanctions will work against the countries that initiate them, Abdollahian said. “Sanctions are aimed against nations,” Abdollahian said.
