Iran terms new US sanctions 'inconsistent'

DUBAI - Iran said on Saturday that the new United States' sanctions placed on some Iranian and foreign banks and businesses would have negative consequences on its nuclear negotiations with world powers.

"These actions are inconsistent with the current process of nuclear negotiations," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said in remarks quoted by the state news agency IRNA, referring to the measures announced by Washington on Friday.

"At a time when the Islamic Republic of Iran has taken confidence building measures based on the agreements, as was reflected by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reports in Tehran, Iran is expecting the same actions by the US and the rest of the world (powers)." The IAEA is the United Nations' nuclear watchdog.
