Iran rejected on Wednesday as “ineffective” U.S. sanctions imposed on Tehran’s civilian space agency and two research organizations for allegedly being used to advance the country’s disputed ballistic missile program, APA reports citing Reuters.

“Americans are addicted to sanctions. These sanctions are totally ineffective,” Foreign Ministry Mohammad Javad Zarif said.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Treasury sanctions targeted the Iran Space Agency, Iran Space Research Centre and the Astronautics Research Institute, according to a statement on its website.
