Iran condemns US Treasury’s latest sanctions on its entities

TEHRAN, Oct. 30 (MNA) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh has condemned the US Treasury’s latest sanctions on real and legal Iranian persons.

Khatibzadeh said the imposition of new sanctions on the Islamic Republic shows a contradictory behavior on the part of the White House.

Khatibzadeh added that a government that talks of returning to the nuclear deal but follows in the footsteps of former US President Donald Trump sends the message that it is not trustworthy.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said various administrations in the US have proved the extent of their incapability to understand the realities of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Khatibzadeh noted that such moves are a continuation of the Trump administration’s failed policy of maximum pressure and its illegal and oppressive sanctions. He added that the policy has failed to produce any results and it will not yield anything but new setbacks for the US.

The Foreign Ministry spokesman reiterated that these pressures and sanctions will not undermine the determination of the Islamic Republic to defend its honorable people’s security and peace.

He added that Tehran will forcefully continue down the path of sustainable development.

In continuation of the blatant violations of the JCPOA, the United States issued a fresh round of sanctions against four Iranian individuals and two entities linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps(IRGC), a notice posted on the US Treasury Department’s website on Friday.

The US Treasury has reiterated its baseless accusations of developing nuclear weapons for unlawful sanctions.

The new round of sanctions by Washington comes at a time the Vienna talks on the revival of the Iran nuclear deal known as the JCPOA are set to begin in November.
