WASHINGTON: The United States on Wednesday put sanctions on Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammed Javad Zarif, effectively slamming the door on the country’s top diplomat.

The sanctions freeze any assets of Zarif in the United States or controlled by US entities, the White House announced.

Washington also will seek to curtail Zarif’s international travel.
