TEHRAN, Dec. 05 (Press Shia) – After US Supreme Court ruled in favor of Trump’s immigration ban, Iranian FM Zarif criticized US governing body for giving bigotry a legalized face in US.

“US Supreme Court defends and allows Trump’s #MuslimBan to go into full effect, giving bigotry full licence in U.S.A. Sad!” reads Foreign Minister Zarif’s latest post on his Twitter account.

Mr. Zarif’s post is in reaction to the Monday decision of US Supreme Court approving Trump’s ban on immigration from six majority-Muslim countries.

The high court’s identical orders in two challenges to the ban mean that most travelers from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad cannot enter the United States while the cases proceed.
