Your sentence doesn't break any rules, but it wouldn't be my first choice. I'd prefer to use "retaliating" as a verb. "When France made a diplomatic faux pas, Iran retaliated economically." You could also use "engaged in" "After Trump insulted Merkel, Germany engaged in economic retaliation against him."

You hear "economic sanctions" often in this context.
