Ali Akbar Velayati, an international adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, deplored a recent move by the US to impose sanctions on Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif as “shameful” and said, APA reports citing Tasnim.

In remarks released on Friday, Velayati condemned the US move to put sanctions on the Iranian top diplomat, and said, “The moneygrubbing president of the US has treated the international arena and foreign policy as playthings.”

“If there was previously any doubt even among US allies about the country’s disrepute and non-commitment, after the coming into power of this person (Donald Trump), it was proven that the US is not even capable of confronting the Islamic Republic of Iran’s exact expression and proven logic,” he noted.

“It (the Washington government) has increased its isolation in the world day by day and this shameful act is yet another sign of (its) desperation and frustration in the face of Iran’s clear logic,” Velayati went on to say.
