'EU support for Iran gives wrong message'
washington - The European aid of € 18 million to Iran gives 'the wrong message, at the wrong time.' That is what the American special envoy for Iran, Brian Hook, who calls on Brussels to help the United States end to the Iranian threat.
According to Hook, Iran can use the funds to continue its policy and continue to ignore the needs of the people. He says in a statement that the Iranian people are under severe economic pressure, which is 'caused by the corruption, mismanagement and major government investment in terrorism and foreign conflicts. '
This week, the European Commission announced that EUR 18 million will be earmarked for a number of sustainable projects in Iran. 'With this measure, the EU shows its support to the Iranian people and its peaceful and sustainable development,' said EU Commissioner Neven Mimica (international cooperation).
