Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reacted to the re-imposition of US sanctions on Iran following Washington’s withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
“Trump Administration wants the world to believe it's concerned about the Iranian people. Yet the very first sanctions it reimposed have canceled licenses for sales of 200+ passenger jets under absurd pretexts, endangering ordinary Iranians. US hypocrisy knows no bounds,” Mr. Zarif wrote on his official Twitter account.
In another tweet, on the 73rd anniversary of Hiroshima atomic bombing, Iranian foreign minister wrote, “Today in 1945, US became 1st & only country to ever use nukes. And on an urban center of all targets. 73 yrs later - w/ vastly expanded nuke arsenal it refuses to dismantle in defiance of NPT commitment - US militarism hasn't faded. Neither has its utter disregard for human life”.
