Foreign Policy posted a report on Monday stating that the Trump administration is now barring Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif from entering the United States to address the United Nations Security Council about the US targeted killing of Iran’s top military official in Iraq.
This move is in direct violation of a 1947 headquarters agreement requiring Washington to allow foreign officials into the country to conduct U.N. business.
According to the report, Zarif had applied for a visa “weeks ago” but was ultimately denied on Monday, just days after Donald Trump approved the airstrike that killed Maj. Gen. Qassem Suleimani.
