GENEVA,  The United States' latest economic sanctions against Iran display a disregard for the human rights of all Iranians, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Wednesday.

The U.S. Treasury on Tuesday sanctioned two Iranian banks and a handful of companies allegedly linked to Iran's Basij militia, which Washington says has recruited and trained child soldiers for Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards."Latest US sanctions violate 2 ICJ orders: to not impede humanitarian trade & to not aggravate the dispute. Utter disregard for rule of law & human rights of an entire people. US outlaw regime's hostility toward Iranians heightened by addiction to sanctions," Zarif said in a Twitter post. By ICJ, Zarif was referring to the International Court of Justice.
