Iranian President, Ebrahim Raisi urged the Japanese government to release Iran’s assets in Japan at a press conference in Tehran on Tuesday.
Iranian President said that « our advice to Japan’s administration is to live independently, not be a hostage of America, and not freeze any money that Iran has in Japan for the product’s price or as trust. [I advise] not to Japan but to other states to not be influenced by other states. »
« Some people say the solution to Iran’s problems is having good ties with the US and Western countries », Raisi said and added, « we do not tie people’s lives and economies to their wills ».
Moreover, the president shed light on Iran’s membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation and BRICS showing that the enemies have failed to isolate Iran on the international scale.
« BRICS and SCO are proper international coalitions. Membership in the SCO and BRICS coalition will help to stand against US unilateralism. Huge economies are members of the BRICS and SCO. Iran’s economy can be effective next to these economies. » said Raisi.
The Iranian President added, « Iran’s Political, economic and commercial situation showed that the foe did not achieve anything throughout its strategy for isolating Iran and it failed. »
