Has the US reimposed restrictions on Iranian diplomats in NY?

'The Iranian foreign minister will not be snapping selfies on top of the Empire State Building,' US State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller said when asked during a press briefing whether the Biden administration had reimposed restrictions on the movement of Iranian diplomats attending UN meetings in New York. This came ahead of Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian's planned trip to join a Thursday UN Security Council meeting in New York, days after Iran fired a barrage of missiles and drones at Israel in response to the latter's strike on an Iranian embassy in Syria. Miller was pressed to give a clear answer but refused to indicate whether his government had formally reimposed restrictions on Iranian diplomats.
