U.S. imposes sanctions on Iran’s Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif

The Trump administration imposed sanctions on
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Wednesday in a dramatic
step bound to further escalate tensions with Tehran. A
senior administration official said Zarif had acted more as a
“propaganda minister” than a diplomat, and Secretary of State Mike
Pompeo said Zarif was “complicit” in Iran’s support of terrorists,
torture and other malign activity around the world.
