Iranian FM decries US sanctions 

A spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry on June 25 condemned the new US sanctions against his country.

Referring to the fact that the US Department of State imposed sanctions on the captains of Iranian oil tankers which transported crude oil to Venezuela, the spokesman said this is clear evidence showing that the US anti-Iranian pressure and offensive are doomed to abject failure.

Saying the US has launched another desperate offensive as it applies sanctions against individual Iranians, he stressed that Iran and Venezuela would resolutely fight against such moves.
