Iran said Tuesday it would continue its retaliatory measure of barring US visitors in response to President Donald Trump’s updated travel ban on predominantly Muslim countries.

“Our earlier counter-measure against Trump’s previous order is still in place,” said deputy foreign minister Majid Takht Ravanchi. “There is no need for a new decision,” he said, according to the ISNA news agency.


Iran’s foreign ministry announced in January it would ban Americans from entering the country in response to Trump’s “insulting” order restricting arrivals from Iran and six other Muslim states.
