Iran condemns US sanctions on state media

The spokesman of Iran’s Foreign Ministry has condemned Washington’s sanctions on Iran’s state T.V., the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), and its affiliate network Press T.V.

Nasser Kanaani said in a tweet on Friday that the sanctions on Iranian media were intended to stop Iranians from expressing their views to the rest of the world.

The sanctions continue to violate the rights of the Iranian people and attempt to give the anti-Iran networks and media leeway to continue their malicious acts against the Iranian nation, he added.

The “U.S. crimes’’ against independent nations and governments are endless, he noted.

In a statement earlier on Wednesday, the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury imposed sanctions on six senior employees of the IRIB.

It alleged that IRIB had broadcast hundreds of forced confessions of Iranians, dual nationals, and international detainees in Iran.
