Tehran said that the announced sanctions against the spiritual leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei will permanently seal the diplomatic path, accused that United States is in the process of destroying peacekeeping mechanisms.

Tehran has termed the further tightening of sanctions by the United States a diplomatic impasse. The sanctions against the spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the measures announced against Foreign Minister Mohammed Jawad Zarif meant “to close the diplomatic path permanently”, Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said on Tuesday in the text message service Twitter.

The American President Donald Trump “Is destroying all existing international mechanisms for the maintenance of peace and world security”. Mousavi said

Trump had on Monday tightened financial sanctions on Khamenei. The tightening of sanctions against Iran took place in the context of growing tensions in the region. Trump blamed Khamenei for Iran’s destabilizing activities in the region.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin also announced that Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif will be added to the sanctions list later this week.

Most recently, tensions between Iran and the United States have massively increased. The situation was aggravated last week after shooting down an American reconnaissance drone by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

US President Donald Trump then considered a military retaliatory attack, but stop short of it fearing deaths of civilians. Diplomatic relations between the two countries have been frozen since 1980.
