Iran FM: Trump travel ban a ‘shameful exhibition of blind hostility’

July 1, 2017 - 9:35

TEHRAN — The Iranian foreign minister has strongly opposed the resumption of U.S. President Donald Trump’s travel ban.

“U.S. now bans Iranian grandmothers from seeing their grandchildren, in a truly shameful exhibition of blind hostility to all Iranians,” Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted on Friday.

The U.S. administration set new criteria on Wednesday for visa applicants and refugees from six majority Muslim countries, including Iran, where grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, fiances and other extended family are not accepted as “close family.”
