On Friday, U.
S. President Donald Trump, a critic of the 2015 accord to prevent Iran developing nuclear arms, said that he would extend sanctions relief one last time to give Washington and its European allies a chance to fix the "terrible flaws".
However, the U. S. imposed fresh sanctions on 14 individuals and entities over alleged human rights abuses.
Iran's Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by state media, "The Trump regime's hostile action (against Larijani) crossed all red lines of conduct in the international community and is a violation of international law and will surely be answered by a serious reaction of the Islamic Republic".
