Tehran announces counter sanctions against US

TEHRAN: In a retaliation move, Tehran announced counter sanctions against the United States and said that US President Donald Trump violated the nuclear deal.     

Iranian Foreign Ministry termed the US sanctions on Iran as illegal and said in a statement on Friday that they would be imposing legal restrictions on US individuals and entities that are assisting regional terrorist groups.

Iran said, ‘The new sanctions are not compatible with America’s commitments and resolution 2231 of the United Nations Security Council that endorsed the nuclear deal reached between Iran and six powers.”

The minister said that in response to US sanctions, Iran will also impose legal restrictions on some US individuals and entities that were involved in supporting regional terrorist groups.
