Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif hit back at the U.S. on Tuesday over its move to reimpose economic sanctions on the Islamic state, adding that the “world is sick and tired of America’s unilateralism.”

Zarif held talks with his North Korean counterpart in Tehran, a meeting that’s "likely no coincidence" but a signal to Washington that Iran is upbeat with its diplomacy and ready to retaliate against the “most biting” economic U.S. sanctions, reports Al Jazeera.

The latest round of U.S. sanctions on Iran has drawn firm resistance from other signatories of the landmark nuclear deal, with the E.U. chief warning the European companies against ceasing their business activities with Tehran, writes The Guardian.
