New US Sanction on Iran's Nuclear Program

Iran Focus

London, 26 March - In May 2018, Donald Trump pulled the US out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and reimposed sanctions on Iran, citing that the agreement failed to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, rather only delaying it until 2024.

In order to put pressure on Iran to come back to the table for a new deal that did stop them from creating a nuclear weapon, the US State and Treasury Departments put numerous sanctions on Iran.

Most recently, they levied sanctions against 31 entities and individuals linked to the Organization for Defense Innovation and Research (SPND), a military institute that US officials allege is maintaining nuclear weapons expertise under the guise of a civilian nuclear program.

London, 7 Mar - The European Union has decided to leave sanctions that are imposed on dozens of Iranian human rights abusers in place until 2020.

Ambassadors from EU-nations met in Brussels on Wednesday to debate the matter, according to diplomats who spoke on condition of anonymity, and agreed that the asset freezes and visa bans on 82 Iranian citizens and the Iranian Cyber Police should be upheld.

Iran testing ballistic missiles

London, 20 Mar - U.S. President Trump said that Iran is defying a U.N. Security Council resolution by carrying out ballistic missile testing, as well as two satellite launches since December. Iran’s missile program and its regional meddling are reasons he cited when he pulled the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear deal and reimposed sanctions last May.

London, 4 Mar - Just over a year ago, information about Iran’s secret nuclear programme was uncovered during a raid on an undisclosed facility near Tehran and presented to the US, so that the Donald Trump administration could use it to crack down on the mullahs’ malign activities.

Sceptics dismissed the archive as “nothing new”, but careful analysis showed that Iran was far closer to obtaining nuclear weapons than the international community thought.
