IRNA reports that the Head of Tehran Municipality's Center for Communications and International Affairs Gholamhossein Mohammadi wrote on his tweeter on Friday that US envoy called for imposing sanctions on Hanachi as he was to arrive in Berlin.
"As it has been predicted the US is angry with Tehran Mayor's trip to Europe despite sanctions and policy of maximum pressure on the Iranian nation and government," he said.
Meetings and dialogues are indicative of Europeans' willingness to work with Tehran city seriously, he said.
