TEHARN (ISNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the country would show 'proper and smart' reaction to any unconstructive measure towards Geneva deal concluded between Iran and the G5+1.

His remarks came after the US State Department and Treasury added 19 companies and individuals in the Europe and Asia to its sanction list against Iran, saying that these individuals and corporations had cooperated with Iran's Mahan Air.

'Over last few days, the Americans carried out inappropriate measures and we responded to them in a proper way considering all aspects,' Zarif said in his Facebook page.

'We will seriously press ahead with Geneva talks and we will show appropriate, planned, purposeful and smart reaction to any inappropriate and destructive action (even if it is not violating Geneva deal).'
