Iran's Zarif tweets: U.S. treasury is nothing more than a "jail warden"

DUBAI, Sept 5 (Reuters) - The U.S. treasury is nothing more than a “jail warden”, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted on Thursday, a day after Washington imposed fresh sanctions designed to choke off the smuggling of Iranian oil.

“OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control of U.S. Treasury) is nothing more than a JAIL WARDEN: Ask for reprieve (waiver), get thrown in solitary for the audacity. Ask again and you might end up in the gallows,” Zarif wrote on his Twitter account. (Writing by Parisa Hafezi; Editing by Toby Chopra)
