The unilateral and unlawful economic terrorism waged by the United States government has endangered lives, health and freedom of people and amounted to “full-scale economic war and terrorism against the Iranian people," the ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

It added that the American institution acting under its deceitful name, and in particular its chief executive, have "deliberately and knowingly" been endeavoring, in a proactive and serious manner, towards damaging the security and vital interests of the Iranian people.

The think tank and its CEO effectively collaborated in designing and implementing the sanctions against Iran and aggravation of their effects, the statement said.

It emphasized that other administrative, judicial or security bodies may take further legal measures to counter, prosecute or punish the institution and Dubowitz, and their associates or collaborators for their actions and deeds against national security and interests of the Iranian government and nation.
