Iran added outgoing US President Donald Trump and other US officials to its sanctions list, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said.
According to the statement of Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh, other sanctioned officials include Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin, former Pentagon chief Mark Esper, Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, CIA head Gina Haspel, and former National Security Adviser John Bolton.
In addition, former US special envoy for Iran Brian Hook and the current special envoy Elliott Abrams appeared on Tehran's black list.
