Iran slams 'psychological war' to disrupt ties with Europe

Iran has hit out at a "psychological war" targeting its ties with Europe after reports that Iranian assets in Germany had been frozen ahead of a US deadline to reimpose sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

The freeze report came as ministers from Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia met their Iranian counterpart in Vienna Friday to provide Tehran with an economic package to compensate for US sanctions that begin taking effect in August.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Saturday the German delegation, along with other delegates, examined how to find better mechanisms for boosting economic and banking cooperation between the two countries.

"Unfortunately, during the last few days and weeks coincident with the Iran and P4+1 negotiations, a campaign of news fabrication and a psychological warfare has been underway by certain trans-regional countries and spiteful groups in order to disrupt Iran's relations with Europeans, which needs to be confronted through vigilance," he said.
