(Persia Digest) – Iran’s Foreign Minister has tweeted a message about the start of new sanctions imposed on Iran by the US saying: “Today, US defied UN top court & Security Council by reimposing sanctions on Iran that target ordinary people. But US bullying is backfiring, not just because JCPOA is important, but because the world can't allow Trump & Co. to destroy global order. The US—& not Iran—is isolated.”
