Lawmaker: White House Irked by Iran Sanctions on US Officials

The Iranian lawmaker stated that the West still seeks to impose more political, economic and trade limitations on Tehran to pursue its extremist policies.

However, he emphasized that such measures will have no impact on the Iranian nation's will.

The US, Britain and Canada on Friday imposed travel bans against some 52 Iranian "government ministers, military and law enforcement officers, and judiciary and prison officials" over alleged violations of human rights or links to Tehran's nuclear program.

According to the new measures, Iranian state officials, whose names have not been made public, are barred from entering the US, Britain and Canada.

In May, Iran took a stance regarding human rights violations in the West and imposed sanctions against 26 US officials who have a history of rights violations.

The officials on the list included commander of US forces in Iraq Raymond Odierno, USS Vincennes Captain Will Rogers III, former FBI chief Thomas J. Pickard, and the former commander of the US detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Geoffrey D. Miller.

Current Guantanamo commander Rear Admiral Jeffery Harbeson, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and another US military official were also blacklisted.
