Iran foreign ministry comments on sanctions against Zarif
The United States has sanctioned Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif because they fear his negotiating skills, the republic's Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said.
"The peak of stupidity and inconsistency of America’s leaders is at a point where they don’t recognize Dr. Zarif as being influential in Iran’s policy but with the ultimate ignorance they sanction him!” Mousavi wrote on Twitter.
"The Americans have a strong fear of the logic of Dr. Zarif and his negotiating skills.
The Treasury in Washington has confirmed yesterday Javad Zarif has had sanctions imposed on him.
