President Donald Trump on Monday put sanctions on Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and eight senior military commanders, that deny him and his office access to financial resources. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin also said financial restrictions would be imposed on Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif later this week.
"The futile sanctions against the Iranian leader and the country's chief diplomat mean the permanent closure of the diplomatic path with the government of the United States," foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi was quoted as saying by semi-official Iranian Students News Agency. "The Trump government is in the process of destroying all the established international mechanisms for the maintaining global peace and security."
