    Iran’s globe-trotting foreign minister, Javad Zarif, will be designated for U.S. sanctions later this week, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said at the White House on Monday.

    “The president has also designated – instructed me that we will be designating Zarif later this week,” he told reporters, while discussing the latest sanctions developments.

    President Trump earlier Monday issued an executive order targeting supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and his office, and Mnuchin then announced sanctions against eight senior Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commanders.

    There was no immediate reaction from Zarif to the news. An Iranian lawmaker said that in a meeting Monday Zarif said that Iran was standing firm against U.S. sanctions and threats “with full power,” and would continue doing so. In a speech Monday, Zarif complained that U.S. sanctions were harming Iran’s efforts to fight illicit drug trafficking.






    Zarif is a high-profile figure, widely and often warmly received in world capitals. He is active on social media, regularly using his Twitter feed to respond to U.S. policies and to push his talking point that a so-called “B team” of U.S. officials and allies are goading Trump into a war with Iran. (The regime blocks access to Twitter to Iranian citizens.)

    Veteran Iran-watchers in Washington expressed the hope that sanctions against Zarif would be accompanied by information that illuminates his involvement in malign regime behavior – and so challenges the notion that he is a “moderate.”

    Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) senior vice president Jonathan Schanzer, a former Treasury Department terror finance analyst, said he was keen to see the Treasury document that accompanies Zarif’s designation.

    “These are derived from declassified intelligence,” he tweeted. “If done right, the statement could severely puncture the hardliners vs narrative that has been parroted by regime shills for a decade.”

    Schanzer added that if the intelligence “supports the case that Zarif is himself involved in the regime’s malign activities, it could be a game changer for the debate in DC.”

    “If administration does sanction Zarif, they should make it clear that he’s responsible & accountable for decisions made by regime to conduct malign & destructive activities,” tweeted FDD executive director Mark Dubowitz.

    “No more mendaciously denying responsibility. He is part of regime in Iran & core regime decision-making.”

    Dubowitz noted that Zarif is a member of the regime’s Supreme National Security Council and as such is a party to the regime’s major foreign policy and national security decisions.

    “He should be sanctioned for his role in the regime’s malign conflict. He’s part of the system. He is loyal. He didn’t go to Mugniyah’s funeral because he wanted to see the Cedars. He whitewashes murder and terrorism all the time. He is Khamenei’s man.”

    (Hezbollah arch-terrorist Imad Mugniyah, an FBI “most wanted” terrorist accused of masterminding numerous deadly attacks, was killed in a 2008 bomb blast in Damascus which Hezbollah and Iran blamed on Israel and the CIA. Since his death Zarif has paid his respectsmore than once, visiting his tomb while visiting Lebanon. Asked about honoring the dead terrorist, Zarif told NBC News in 2015 that Hezbollah fighters “are considered heroes in the entire Middle East.”)

    How do you sanction a country's foreign minister? Of course he is loyal to the government he is working for. Will he not be allowed to travel? What will these sanctions entail in practical terms?

    Seems strange.

    Zionist running the entire administration, look at FDD, look who seeded the money for it, look at the analyst working there, that was a treasury dept analyst. All of them Zionist. Iran has no play except to wait out this soft brained orange moron who has unknowingly become an israeli agent.

    American politicians are acting exactly like Div (demon) nowadays which is known in Iranian mythology as a creature that do things reversed ... they claim they wanna talk but meanwhile would sanction the one that is supposed to carry the task.

    Retarded! Who sanctions a foreign minister? Besides, when the folks at FDD are saying he is loyal to the supreme leader, isn't Zarif an Iranian serving his country? The Zionists are one-eyed, and they only see through that one eye. Reasoning really escapes these folks.

    Trump is a racist himself. And then he has National Security Advisor John Bolton, a Zionist and a war monger who was one of the architects of war against Iraq.

    With people of such deplorable character and blood of innocent on their hands, they are planning another war with Iran, all to secure Israel.

    Always remember this. A white supremacist is always a racist and always an Israel sympathizer.

    USA is pushing Iran in a corner and wanting to find an excuse to start a war. USA is a world pariah which is going out on a limb to secure Israel. This world pariah at this moment hold all the power levers of the world but the grip is slipping. I wish and I hope it ignominiously fails. after all, this series of attacks on countries in Middle East has to stop.
