Iran's parliament speaker said Sunday that new U.S. visa regulations amounted to "harassment" and reciprocal steps would be taken if the plans are implemented.The rules, approved by Congress last month, would bar people from 38 mainly European countries from travelling to the United States without a visa if they have visited Iran, Iraq, Syria or Sudan since 2011 .Iran recently simplified its visa entry rules, seeking to boost tourism, but the United States, Britain and Canada are among 11 countries whose citizens cannot obtain a visa on arrival.Iran recently consulted with European countries and said the visa plan went against the spirit of the July 14 deal struck with world powers led by the United States over Tehran's nuclear program.
