Iran condemns latest EU, UK sanctions as ‘baseless, illegal’

Tehran: The Iranian foreign ministry on Tuesday strongly condemned the latest EU and British sanctions against Iranian individuals and organizations.
Nasser Kanaani, the ministry spokesman, said in a press release that the sanctions are baseless and illegal, constituting interference in Iran’s internal affairs.
Iran will respond proportionately to such non-constructive and futile measures, he added.
A day earlier, the European Union and Britain imposed sanctions against Iran in a coordinated action.
The British government announced a new package of sanctions, targeting 24 Iranian officials for what it called human rights violations.
The EU sanctions were slapped on 29 individuals and three organizations in Iran, including Iran’s interior minister and several senior police and military officials. (UNI/XINHUA)
