Zarif commented on new US sanctions against Iran

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif advised Americans to abandon failed policies, saying Iranians will never submit to bullying, ONA reports citing IRNA.

"Subjecting construction workers to EconomicTerrorism only manifests maximum failure of 'maximum pressure'," Zarif tweeted on Friday.

"US can sanction every man, woman and child but Iranians will never submit to bullying," he added.

He noted, "Rather than dig itself deeper, US should abandon failed policies and return to JCPOA."


Spokesperson for the United States Department of State Morgan Ortagus announced earlier that the US is increasing maximum pressure on the Iranian government by targeting Iran’s construction sector.

She claimed that it’s controlled by the the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC).

She also threatened anyone who sells, supplies, or transfers covered materials to Iran’s construction sector to face mandatory sanctions.
