Dubai (Reuters) – Iran on Saturday criticised a U.S. move to make exceptions to sanctions in order to help provide internet to Iranians during nationwide protests, state media reported.

It said this was in line with Washington’s hostile stance towards Tehran. 

“By reducing the severity of a number of communications sanctions – while maintaining maximum pressure – the U.S. is seeking to advance its goals against Iran,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani was quoted by state media as saying.
