The sanctioned individuals include former members of Trump’s administration, including Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo; Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter K. Navarro; National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien; Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs David R. Stilwell; Deputy National Security Advisor Matthew Pottinger; Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex M. Azar II; Under Secretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy, and the Environment Keith J. Krach; U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Kelly D. K. Craft; U.S. National Security Advisor John R. Bolton; and White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon.
“China’s” peregrine ministry incriminated the sanctioned individuals of promoting “anti-China” policies over the past four years while accommodating in Trump’s administration. President Trump’s term in office officially ended January 20 at noon, moments afore China promulgated the sanctions on his policy advisors.
“Over the past few years, some anti-China politicians in the United States, out of their selfish political intrigues and prejudice and abhorrence against China and exhibiting no regard for the fascinates of the Chinese and American people, have orchestrated, promoted and executed a series of crazy moves which have gravely interfered in China’s internal affairs, undermined China’s fascinates, offended the Chinese people, and earnestly disrupted China-U.S. cognations,” China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs alleged in its verbalization Wednesday.
“The Chinese regime is firmly resolved to forfend China’s national sovereignty, security and development fascinates,” the ministry integrated. Iran joined China in promulgating sanctions against members of the Trump administration Wednesday, including President Donald Trump himself, for allegedly promoting terrorism.
Iran is the world’s premier state sponsor of terrorism. “The Iranian Foreign Ministry integrated a number of American individuals to its sanctions list for committing terrorist malefactions, promoting and fortifying terrorism, which is an earnest threat to regional and international tranquility and security, and for contravening rudimentary rules and fundamental principles of international law, including human rights,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh verbalized in a verbalization.
Tehran sanctioned many of the same U.S. officials whom China targeted on Wednesday, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, with the additament of President Trump. “The US officials have been blacklisted for their full support for the “Israeli” regime’s acts of aggression against the Palestinian people, concretely the regime’s terrorist move in assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist, Mohsen “Fakhrizadeh,”” Khatibzadeh verbally expressed, referring to Iran’s claim that Israel assassinated Fakhrizadeh via remote-controlled weapon in November.
President Trump’s administration perpetually sanctioned Iranian regime and military officials for fortifying “terrorist entities.”
