Iranian Students, Academics Sign Petition for Freezing of All Ties with Britain
The petition which was signed on the sidelines of a ceremony to commemorate the '(University) Students Day' in Iran on Wednesday, said, "The British government has hatched plots and implemented several coups, assassinations, threats and seditions against the Iranian nation."
The Iranian academics in their petition reminded London's threats of waging a military attack against Tehran and imposing sanctions on the Central Bank of Iran (CBI), and said since having relations with Britain is fruitless, "we demand a full cut of relations with this vicious arrogant government and ask for filing international complaint against the crimes of this government against the Iranian nation".
According to a report by the Eurostat website, despite the western sanctions and the extra embargos imposed by the EU against Iran, the country ranks 7th in exporting crude oil to Europe.
The report also mentioned that the 27 European states imported €11.4bln of goods from Iran in the first 9 months of the current year.
