3. The United States banned Iran and said that the trade would give ‘serious consequences’
The US has again imposed strict sanctions on Iran. These restrictions were removed after the Multilateral Nuclear Agreement. In May, American President Donald Trump announced the ousting of US nuclear deal. In the first phase of US sanctions, Iran has been targeted for access to American currency and other major industries including cars and carpets. Iran is already facing the impact of the ban. Since his announcement of an exit from the deal, the value of his currency riyal remained about halfway.
Trump has termed it as a “terrible, one-sided deal” while targeting the nuclear deal.
Trump, once again targeting the nuclear deal, has termed it “a terrible, unilateral deal”. He said that this agreement has failed to achieve the fundamental purpose of blocking all the routes to make Iran’s nuclear bomb. In an executive order issued yesterday, Trump said that financial pressure has been put on Iran for the development of missile and “comprehensive and permanent solution” of “fatal” activities in the region. European Union diplomatic leader Federica Mogrini said that the rest of the group, including Britain, France, and Germany, have regretted the ban on the US again.
Many big companies are going out of Iran due to the fear of US fines. Trump has warned companies and companies that continue to trade with Iran to suffer “serious consequences”. The second phase of US sanctions will be effective from November 5 and will look at Iranian crude oil sales.
This situation will cause extreme damage to many countries like India, China, and Turkey. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohamed Jawad Jarif said that this move of the troupe has made America “isolated” in the world. However, he believed that some restrictions may arise from the restrictions.
