Zarif sanctioned by U.S. due to his negotiating skills - Iran foreign ministry

GENEVA (Reuters) - The United States has sanctioned Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif because they fear his negotiating skills, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said in a tweet early on Thursday.

“The peak of stupidity and inconsistency of America’s leaders is at a point where they don’t recognise Dr. Zarif as being influential in Iran’s policy but with the ultimate ignorance they sanction him!” Mousavi wrote. “The Americans have a strong fear of the logic of Dr. Zarif and his negotiating skills.”
