'17 yrs after 9/11, Iran - 1st Muslim nation to condemn tragedy, mourn victims and take real action against AQ and its offshoots incl ISIS and Nusrah - has been fined $11bn and its citizens banned from US. All while WH auctions off FP to terror sponsors whose citizens perpetrated 9/11,' Mohammad-Javad Zarif tweeted on Tuesday.
