Foreign Ministry spokesman condemned the recent action of the US Treasury in imposing sanctions on individuals and legal entities of Iran, saying: "The imposition of new sanctions shows the completely contradictory behavior of the White House."

Iran PressIran news: Saeed Khatibzadeh said Thursday evening: "The government that says it intends to return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and continues to follow Trump's method of imposing sanctions, sends a message that it is not credible."

He stated: "Different governments in the United States have shown how incapable they are of understanding the realities of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Such US actions are in the continuation of the failed policy of Trump's Maximum Pressure and its illegal and cruel sanctions, and they have no success for the White House except new failures."

Khatibzadeh emphasized: "The pressures and sanctions will not undermine the determination of the Government of the Islamic Republic to defend the security and peace of the Iranian people. Tehran continues the path of sustainable economic development."
