Basij Commander: Vienna Agreement Increases Hatred for US in Iran
Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi warned of Washington’s continued animosity towards the Islamic Republic, and said the contents of the last Tuesday nuclear agreement between Tehran and the world powers in Vienna boosts Iranians’ hatred for the US.
“Any Iranian who reads the Vienna documents will hate the US 100 times more (than the past),” Naqdi said on Tuesday.
He also referred to the UN Security Council’s Resolution 2231 approved on Monday, and said, “All paragraphs of the resolution that the US proposed to the UNSC are full of enmity towards Iran and show the US deep grudge against the Iranian nation.”
“The US needs the agreement merely to legalize the sanctions and continue pressure against Iran,” Naqdi said, adding that Washington sees the agreement as a tool to provide the ground for military aggression against Iran.
