Iran condemned new American sanctions on its ballistic missile programme that were imposed on Tuesday and responded with its own sanctions against Americans, official news agency IRNA reported.

The foreign ministry condemned "the United States' worthless act of imposing illegal sanctions" against people linked to the programme, IRNA reported.

Tehran "will in turn apply new sanctions against American people and entities that have acted against the Iranian people and other Muslim peoples of the region," it said.
