Washington: The Trump administration of the US imposed new sanctions on Iran in the last days of its tenure. Many companies of this country are banned. Some companies in China and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have also taken action to do business with Tehran. US Secretary of State Mike Ponpio said that the US has banned seven companies, including China’s Xiangyon Mascot Special Steel Company and UAE’s Accenture Building Materials. He said that Iran’s Marine Industry Organization, Aerospace Industry Organization and Iran Aviation Industry Organization have also been blacklisted for the proliferation of conventional weapons.
Ponpio said in a statement on Friday that the State Department is also considering imposing metal-related sanctions against Iran. Iran intentionally supplied 15 materials, including certain types of aluminum and steel.These were used in Iran’s nuclear, military or ballistic missiles. Let President Donald Trump pressurize Iran during his tenure to come to the negotiating table regarding its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
If this did not happen, they separated the US from Iran’s nuclear deal in 2018. After this many strict restrictions were imposed on this West Asian country. In 2015, this nuclear deal was signed by Iran with the US, Russia, Britain, France, China and Germany. However, future President Joe Biden has promised that he will rejoin the deal.
