Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has criticized the Trump administration's latest move to step up sanctions on Iran as "economic terrorism", ONAreports.

"Escalating economic terrorism against Iranians exposes panic and desperation of US regime - and chronic failures of its client co-conspirators," he tweeted, adding, "Inheritors of ancient Persian civilization don't base strategy on "advice" of foreigners - let alone Americans."

Yesterday, the White House declared the decision not to reissue the waivers on Iranian oil after they expire in May. Washington additionally stressed that the decision "is intended to bring Iran's oil exports to zero", ruining its vital source of revenue.
