Iran’s president has condemned as an “invasion” new sanctions on around 30 firms, banks and individuals, imposed by the US amid stalled talks on Tehran’s nuclear program. Iran believes Washington’s move contradicts earlier agreements.
“Sanctions are an invasion of the Iranian nation. We should resist the invasion and put the invaders in their place,” Iranian president Hassan Rouhani told officials in remarks broadcast by state TV. “We should not allow the continuation and repetition of the invasion.”
On Friday, the United States announced it was putting more pressure on Iran by penalizing around 30 businesses, banks and individuals, allegedly helping Iran proceed with working on its nuclear program, supporting terrorism and letting Iran evade prior sanctions.
“Today we took additional steps in our effort to maintain pressure on the government of Iran,” said Caitlin Hayden, a spokeswoman for the White House’s National Security Council.
Additional sanctions contradict an interim agreement reached by Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers, Iran’s state TV said. The deal includes Iran curbing its nuclear activities in exchange for lifting some of its sanctions.
“These actions are inconsistent with the current process of nuclear negotiations,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said …read more
