EghtesadOnline: Iran will find suitable solutions to counter recent US president visa ban order which prohibits issuing visa for certain Muslim-majority countries including Iran, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Tuesday.
Referring to establishment of a committee in the Foreign Ministry for adopting proper actions towards US President Donald Trump's recent stances, he said the committee has already started work to help Iranian citizens in this regard, IRNA reported.
The Foreign Ministry committee prepared some instructions in case of new US president orders and communicated them to the Iranian missions across the world on Sunday and Monday, the officail noted.
The instructions aim to glorify the status of Iranians living abroad particularly those who are residing in the US and could face problems, he added.
According to the dispatches, several would-be passengers have been barred from boarding flights to the United States. A new US immigration ban will even apply to Green Card holders from seven Muslim-majority nations.
The plan for banning visa for immigrants and citizen of certain countries has stirred reaction of the US human rights activists who believe that immigration is a significant part of the culture dominating the country and regard such an approach in contradiction with the US values.
The plan has also made some US lawmakers, artists and political analysts, and civil rights activists show reaction.
