    Tehran will reciprocate the "insulting" US temporary ban on entry for Iranian nationals until the restrictions are lifted, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) On Friday, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order blocking from entering the United States all Syrian refugees until the adequate changes are made to the Refugee Admission Program (USRAP) and suspending the entry for all nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days.

    "The government of Iran… in order to support its citizens will take reciprocal steps until these insulting measures by the United States against Iranian citizens are lifted," the statement said, as quoted by the IRNA news agency.
