The new U.S. sanctions were an embodiment of Washington’s failed policy against Tehran, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh said on Thursday.

The United States (U.S.) continued to violate the UN Security Council Resolution 2231 while claiming that it was ready to restore the full implementation of its obligations under the 2015 nuclear deal.

This is formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Khatibzadeh said, according to a statement published on the ministry’s website.

“This move is another demonstration of the ill will of the U.S. government toward the Iranian nation, which is a continuation of the failed policy of maximum pressure by the government against Iran,” he said.

“The current U.S. administration, contrary to what it claims, uses every opportunity to level baseless accusations against the Iranian people and impose pressure on them,’’ he added.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Treasury Department announced new sanctions against a number of Iranian individuals and institutions in response to a missile attack by Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps on the northern Iraqi city of Erbil earlier this month.

The new sanctions came amidst international efforts to reach an agreement with Iran to revive the JCPOA.
