US new sanction violates UN Security Council Resolution 2231

US new sanction violates UN Security Council Resolution 2231

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Seyyed Abbas Mousavi said that the US recent sanction over Iranian institutions and national, judicial, and police officials is the sign of Washington’s illegal and arbitrary behavior against international law and order, Iran Press reported.

"This sanction is based on the constant illusions and in response to the failures of the US against the strong will of the government and the people of Iran."

Mousavi added, "The recent sanctions are among the gross violations of UN Security Council Resolution 2231 and its obligations. The international community must hold the United States accountable for these clear and exorbitant violations."

The United States announced another round of sanctions on Wednesday, targeting Iran's interior minister, Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli, and senior law enforcement officials, over allegations of grave human rights violations.

The US Treasury on Wednesday also blacklisted seven senior officials including commander Hossein Ashtari Fard and a provincial commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)
