Iran Warns of 'Unpleasant' Response to Latest U.S. Sanctions


Iran warned on Sunday of “unpleasant” responses to new U.S. sanctions against it, Reuters reports.

The declaration by Iran’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, came after an announcement on Friday that Washington was going to penalize a number of Iranian and other foreign companies, banks and airlines for violating sanctions against Tehran, most of which are tied to a decade-old dispute about its nuclear program.
