WASHINGTON – President George W. Bush on Tuesday extended for one year a range of financial sanctions first imposed on Iran in November 1979, the White House announced in a statement.

“Our relations with Iran have not yet returned to normal,” Bush said in a letter to the US House of Representatives.

The original sanctions, imposed by then-president Jimmy Carter, froze assets of Iran’s government following the November 1979 takeover of the US embassy in Tehran.
