Zionist lobby behind US visa restrictions: Iran


Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari says the recently devised visa restrictions in the US, which affect dual national Iranians and people who have visited Iran, were pushed through under the pressure of Zionist lobby groups.

During his weekly press briefing on Monday, Jaberi Ansari said the recently passed legislation in Washington was part of the Zionist campaign to prevent and later to undermine the nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group of world countries.

On Saturday, Washington passed a law affecting its Visa Waiver Program (VWP), which normally exempts nationals from 38 countries from having to obtain visas to visit the United States. As a result of the changes, the program no longer includes dual nationals from Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Sudan, and anyone else who has traveled to those countries in the past five years.
