Iran’s Ambassador to the United Nations Gholamali Khoshroo criticized some countries that use sanctions as a weapon against other nations, adding that such an approach “challenges international laws and is an infringement of human rights.”
“Unfortunately, it seems that these actions all originate from one country which has seemingly become addicted to imposing sanctions,” Khoshroo said in an apparent reference to the US, ISNA reported on Wednesday.

He said such measures should not be taken based on misinformation or half-baked ideas.
