The head of the Iranian Foreign Ministry called the new sanctions against his country was “economic terrorism.”
The US should return to the agreement concluded in 2015 between Iran and major world powers. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted on Friday. He said the new US sanctions imposed on Tehran demonstrated the “failure of Washington’s policy.”
“…US should abandon failed policy and return to #JCPOA (2015 Nuclear agreement),” Zarif tweeted.
Subjecting construction workers to #EconomicTerrorism only manifests maximum failure of "maximum pressure”.
US can sanction every man, woman & child but Iranians will never submit to bullying.
Rather than dig itself deeper, US should abandon failed policies & return to #JCPOA.

The United States, which pulled out of the agreement last year and imposed sanctions on Iran, on Thursday announced sanctions against Iran’s construction and trade sectors for cooperation with defense and nuclear programs. Zarif called the new sanctions “economic terrorism” and a demonstration of the failure of the policy of “maximum pressure” on Iran.
“The Iranians will never be intimidated,” the Minister wrote.
