Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said that US President Donald Trump’s new travel ban is proof of his fake empathy for Iranians.

Zarif made the remark via his official twitter account early on Monday shortly after Trump signed the new rules, in which citizens of Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen face further restriction in traveling to the US.

“Trump’s fake empathy for Iranians rings ever more hollow, with his new and even more offensive travel ban against such outstanding citizens,” Tweeted Zarif.

The range of restrictions imposed on each state is different, for example in the case of Venezuela, only certain government officials and their families are affected.

Trump’s former ban on travelers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen was enacted in March and expired on Sunday evening.

Zarif also appeared to be referencing Trump’s recent speech at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, to which the Iranian foreign minister stressed “Fake empathy for Iranians fools no one.”

    To Zarif and rest: A businessman open a business to make money, simple and square. You are dealing with a businessman, not a politician. Threw some money, problem solved. Of course if you care about doing business with businessman, otherwise gas that comes out of belly does not have any connection to logics. Saudis are throwing their last drop of money at the businessman. Be patient, when the money runs out the businessman will turn around probably to you since you guys chose the other side, Eastern side.
