(Persia Digest) – A veteran US politician has mocked Mike Pompeo for sanctioning the Iranian Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif.

Gary Sick who served on the staff of the National Security Council under President Carter has attached a link from The Washington Post about sanctions imposed on FM Zarif of Iran on his Facebook page, saying: “Pompeo: when your enemy’s foreign minister is a better diplomat, a better speaker, a better tweeter, and a better representative of his country than you are, well, try to shut him up.”
