Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 15
By Rahim Zamanov - Trend:
Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the country has given an appropriate response to the United States' recent improper action against his country, the IRNA News Agency reported on December 15.
Zarif made the remarks in response to Washington's new sanctions against some companies and individuals.
On Thursday, US Treasury Department added the names of nineteen companies and individuals to its sanctions list for supporting Iran's nuclear program.
"Tehran will prudently respond to any improper and unconstructive action even if it does not violate the recent nuclear deal reached in Geneva," Zarif wrote on his Facebook page.
"Iran will seriously pursue the nuclear negotiations, he added.
Tehran says the new restrictions are in full contradiction of the Geneva accord under which the US made a commitment not to impose new sanctions on Iran.
