Iranian Foreign Ministry slams US sanctions against General Staff as useless

The Iranian Foreign Ministry called on Monday the new sanctions against Tehran useless, stressing that the unilateral measures show helplessness and inability to use diplomacy, APA rpeorts quoting sputniknews.

Notably, the US Department of Treasury imposed the new restrictions against Iran on the 40th anniversary of Iranian militants seizing the US Embassy in Tehran, holding more than fifty Americans hostage for 444 days.

The relations between Washington and Tehran deteriorated after the Trump administration abruptly declared in 2018 its unilateral withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as Iran nuclear deal, and resumption of sanctions against Iran.
