US sanctions mean 'permanent closure' of diplomacy - Iran

Iran's Foreign Ministry condemned the newest United States sanctions against the country's top officials, stating they meant a "permanent" termination of any negotiations between Washington and Tehran.

"The fruitless sanctions on Iran's leadership and the chief of Iranian diplomacy mean the permanent closure of the road of diplomacy with the frustrated US administration," spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Abbas Mousavi (pictured) told the state news agency IRNA on Tuesday.

Earlier, the Iranian ambassador to the United Nations called on the US to stop the "economic war" and remove the sanctions implemented against the Middle Eastern country, while the intergovernmental organization urged "concerned parties and all countries in the region to exercise maximum restraint and take measures and actions to reduce escalation and end tension."
