The United Arab Emirates’ minister of state for foreign affairs, Anwar Gargash, said in a tweet on Saturday that Iran’s “aggressive policies” were “largely responsible” for the re-imposition of US sanctions on Tehran.

Washington will on Monday reintroduce far-reaching sanctions on Iran’s vital oil sales and banking sectors to try to force the Islamic Republic into negotiations to scrap its nuclear energy and ballistic missile programs and end its support for proxies in conflicts across the Middle East.

Iran’s top leader was earlier reported as saying that US President Donald Trump’s policies face opposition across the world as Washington prepared to re-impose sanctions on Iran’s vital oil-exporting and financial sectors.
