US' sanctions against Zarif

Earlier in August 2019, the United States imposed sanctions on the Foreign Minister of Iran, Javad Zarif to send a message to the "Iranian regime". As per the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Iran’s downing of a US drone was "unacceptable" and thus imposing sanctions on "Iran’s Supreme Leader, and is the regime’s primary spokesperson" would send a clear message.

The sanctions against Zarif blocked any property or interests he had in the United States. However, the Iranian foreign minister came out and said, "I have no property or interests outside of Iran". Zarif has lived in the United States, from the age of 17 and he has served as the Iranian ambassador in the UN from 2002 to 2007.
