Iran, one of the countries affected by the United States’ 90-day travel ban on immigrants, says it will reciprocate the “obvious insult”. 

This was contained in a statement released by Iranian foreign ministry on Saturday.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has decided to respond in kind after the insulting decision of the United States concerning Iranian nationals,” the ministry said.

Donald Trump had on Friday signed an executive order to suspend the entry of refugees and other travellers from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya into the US.

The ministry referred to Trump’s decision as “illegal, illogical and contrary to international rules,” saying that was an “obvious insult to the Islamic world and in particular to the great nation of Iran.”

It said it had ordered Iranian diplomatic missions to help Iranians who have been “prevented from returning to their homes and places of work and study” in the US.

Iran noted that its own ban on US nationals will remain until that of America was reversed.

Foreign airlines have already started barring Iranians from US-bound flights.

More than a million Iranians who live in the United States will be affected by Trump’s order.
