US imposes range of sanctions and restrictions on Iran

United States yesterday imposed a range of sanctions and restrictions on Iranian and Iranian-linked officials and entities after an effort over the weekend to reimpose UN sanctions on Tehran was largely rejected.

US President Donald Trump said, he is imposing sanctions on Iranians for violating a UN arms embargo and demanded enforcement by US allies, who roundly dispute that he has any such authority. Mr. Trump further said, his actions sent a clear message to the Iranian regime and those in the international community who refuse to stand up to Iran.

The Trump Administration said, it was imposing sanctions on 27 individuals and entities under a UN resolution including Iran’s Defence Ministry, its Atomic Energy Organization and Venezuela’s leftist leader Nicolas Maduro, whom Washington is trying to topple.
