Iran describes new US sanctions as “cheap”
(tasnim) — The administration of US President Donald Trump said it was imposing new economic sanctions against Iran over the Islamic Republic’s missile program.
The US state department and also department of treasury announced on Tuesday that they were targeting 18 Iranian individuals, groups and networks.
In reply, Iran’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the move to impose new economic sanctions against Tehran was “cheap and useless.”
