Iran to act over ban

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

IRAN said yes­ter­day it would take “re­cip­ro­cal ac­tion” in re­sponse to the US Supreme Court al­low­ing a par­tial im­ple­men­ta­tion of US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s travel ban on six Mus­lim-ma­jor­ity coun­tries.

Lower US courts had com­pletely blocked Trump’s ex­ec­u­tive or­der is­sued in March, which in­cludes a blan­ket 90-day ban on peo­ple from coun­tries, in­clud­ing Iran and Libya and a 120-day ban on all refugees. But the Supreme Court on Mon­day ruled there could be par­tial re­stric­tions placed on refugees. The de­ci­sion showed the US wished to dis­crim­i­nate against Mus­lims, said Iran’s For­eign Min­istry.
