U.S. sanctions against Iran will have “severe consequences” for the world order, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday.

“Unfortunately a law-breaking country [the United States] seeks to punish a country [Iran] that is abiding by law…. This method will have severe consequences for the world order,” Zarif, was quoted as saying during a visit to Istanbul by Iranian state news agency IRNA.
