ICBPS MORNING BRIEF: U.S. Imposes New Sanctions on Iran Defense Ministry
ICBPS Morning Brief– The United States has slapped new sanctions on Iran defense ministry. President Donald Trump administration on Monday has imposed new sanctions on Iran defense ministry and others involved in its nuclear and weapons program to support the U.S. assertion that all U.N. sanctions against Tehran are now restored.
“Today, I am taking new actions to restrict Iran’s nuclear, ballistic missile, and conventional weapons pursuits,” President Donald Trump said in a statement.
Washington also slapped sanctions on more than two dozens people and entities involved in Iran’s Nuke activities or its missile and conventional weapon programs.
The U.S. has targeted 27 Iranian entities and people in the atomic, missile, and conventional arms sectors.
The recent punishments are part of a new sanctions by President Donald Trump’s administration that rests in part on a ‘Snapback’, clause from the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal between Tehran and Obama-led global powers.
“The United States has now restored U.N. sanctions on Iran,” President Donald Trump said in a statement after he signed an executive order spelling out how Washington will enforce the “snapback.” “My actions today send a clear message to the Iranian regime and those in the international community who refuse to stand up to Iran.”
In a Fox News interview with Maria Bartiromo, on Sunday, the Secretary of State said “The U.S. President Donald Trump came to understand quickly that the real threat to these countries was the Islamic Republic of Iran, so we flipped the narrative.”
