Trump’s ‘insulting’ ban: We will respond in kind, says Iran | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Iran will ban Americans from entering the country in response to President Donald Trump’s “insulting” order restricting arrivals from Iran and six other Muslim states, the foreign ministry said 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 in a statement carried by state television.

Trump on Friday signed a sweeping executive order to suspend refugee arrivals and impose tough controls on travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Iran’s foreign ministry called the decision “illegal, illogical and contrary to international rules”.

It said its own ban on US nationals would continue until the American measure was lifted.

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

Travel agents in Tehran said that foreign airlines had begun barring Iranians from US-bound flights.

  1. Responding in kind, how many Americans enter your country? When your citizens were running away from your country. A new down is here.

    1. USA your God will meet their waterloo very soon if Islam is their problem.
      Nobody can fight ALLAH SWT.

    2. Emeka this is Iran you are talking about and not Iraq. Iran is a flourishing country.

    3. Quadri, shut the f u c k up. They nearly choked to death if not for Muslim Obama who helped in lifting the sanctions imposed on them through the evil deal they signed.

  2. I just hope and pray this harsh decisions will not lead to religious crisis accross d globe ....

  3. Leave this Islamophobic christains we have in Nigeria. They thought Iraq is the same as Iran. USA will meet their unexpected waterloo with Iran.

    1. What will Iran do for America?

      Leave shit for Lawma to dispose....

    2. It's not a crime to be afraid of something that has the potentials of taking your life, it is a legitimate fear.
      Islamophobia is not a crime but a legitimate fear. Not all Muslims are terrorists but invariably, all terrorists are muslims. So what difference does it make if I am afraid of islam knowing too well that terrorists are muslims? Those killing Christians in the north are doing so in the name of Allah, do you expect Christians to continue embracing the Muslims knowing they are potential terrorists?
      Leave shit for lawma to dispose.

  4. This action of Trump is foolish. He will not believe what other nations will do to d US. I see d fall of US because more and more ,nations will start holding their own. Let's not forget, America does not hold the four (4) aces, no one to act as one is dangerous. Time will tell.
