US sanctions Iranian foreign minister
WASHINGTON - The United States (US) has put sanctions on Iran's top diplomat foreign minister, Mohammed Javad Zarif, the Radio Pakistan reports on Thursday.

The White House announced that the sanctions include freezing of assets of Zarif in the United States or controlled by US entities.

"Zarif implements the reckless agenda of Iran s Supreme Leader and is the regime s primary spokesperson around the world. The United States is sending a clear message to the Iranian regime that its recent behaviour is completely unacceptable," Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.

Washington will also seek to curtail Zarif's international travel.

Meanwhile, spokesman for Iranian Foreign Ministry Abbas Mousavi said in a tweet today (Thursday) that the United States has imposed sanctions against Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif because they fear of the logic of his negotiating skills.

He said the US leaders follow irrational and illogical policies and they are well aware that Dr Zarif has influential status in Iran's policy, but they imposed sanctions against him which demonstrate their ignorance.
