Islamabad, Aug 1, IRNA -- Pakistan Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Mohammad Faisa on Thursday reacted to US sanctions on Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and said diplomacy should be given a chance.

He said in his weekly press briefing in Islamabad on Thursday.

“Pakistan always believed that diplomacy and dialogue should be given a chance and we stand by our position,” he said.  

The US Department of the Treasury on Wednesday imposed sanctions against Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
