Iran says new US sanctions illegal, insulting

IFP- Iranian foreign ministry spokesman has denounced the US House of Representatives’ approval of a draft law on fresh sanctions against the Islamic Republic, describing it as an illegal and insulting act that endangers the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.

“The US House of Representatives, with the adoption of these non-nuclear sanctions, and in the event of its finalization and implementation, will ignore and threaten the implementation of a multilateral and international agreement that is the result of efforts made in several years,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said in a statement on Wednesday.
