Iranian officials mock new US santions

Via Planet Iran:

Iranian authorities mocked the recent blacklisting of eight Iranian senior officials by the US.

Speaker of the parliament, Ali Larijani announced that US plan on freezing the assets of eight Iranian officials and refusing US visas to them is a “meaningless child play in the international arena.”

The US targeted eight Iranian officials for alleged human rights abuses in the widespread protests to the controversial re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad last summer announcing that they have included their names in their list of sanctions.

By the order of Barack Obama, all US organizations and bodies are prohibited from having any dealings with these individuals while their assets are to be frozen and travel restrictions are also to be set against them.

Iranian Interior Minister, Mohammad Najjar, who is one of the eight people on that list, announced: “US actions with regards to human rights are highly contradictory.”

“They can have my nonexistent assets wherever they are,” Najjar added; “…furthermore, I never had any plans to travel to America.”
