PRESS TV – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani condemned Washington’s recent decision to introduce sanctions targeting the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) and Press TV as a violation of the rights of the Iranian nation.

Taking to Twitter on Friday, the Kanaani wrote the sanctions come while anti-Iran “terrorist media outlets” are free to foment chaos inside Iran through their propaganda campaign.

“Allowing terrorist networks and media outlets to make mischief against the Iranian nation and sanctioning IRIB and Press TV to block Iran’s views from being conveyed to the world is the continuation of the American administration’s blatant violation of the Iranian nation’s rights,” he wrote in a post in Persian.

“There is no end to America’s crimes against independent nations and governments,” Kanaani added.

The US Treasury Department slapped a round of sanctions against high-ranking IRIB officials as the White House continues to interfere in the country’s internal affairs.

The sanctions, imposed by US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), target, among others, IRIB Chief Peyman Jebelli and head of IRIB World Service and the CEO of English-language Press TV television news network Ahmad Norouzi.
