USA extends sanctions relief under Iran nuclear deal

19 May 2017, 11:59 | Terri Saunders

Rouhani has gone further, vowing to end all remaining sanctions still imposed for human-rights abuses, ballistic missile tests and terrorism support.

The designation of the seven Iranian and Chinese people and companies blocks any assets they might have in the United States and bars Americans and non-Americans from doing business with them, at the risk of being blacklisted by the United States. His re-election would be welcomed by Europeans who desire more business dealings with Tehran and who likely would resist or ignore any USA efforts to slap nuclear sanctions back on Iran. A spokesman for the administration explained that the agreement is undergoing a review and only when that's finished will "comprehensive Iran" policy be formulated.

Iranians are set to vote Friday in the country's presidential election.

The State Department says it is telling Congress it will continue to waive sanctions on Iran as part of the 2015 nuclear deal. He added: "It is alarming that individuals involved with Iran's missile programme are assisting the brutal Assad regime, and we are taking action to curtail this behaviour".

The Daily Beast is reporting that United States officials will roll out new sanctions on Iran.

But the summit could be overshadowed by a surprise attendee: Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who has been indicted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court and shunned by the United States for the past 10 years.

The new sanctions specifically target Morteza Farasatpour, a top Iranian defense official, and Rahim Ahmadi, a senior Iranian official. The U.S. says the program is a breach of global law because the missiles could carry nuclear warheads in the future. The US said his network helped produce electronics, such as missile guidance for Iran's program.

Matin Sanat has aided an Iranian chemical company responsible for producing Iran's liquid-fueled ballistic missile industry. Simultaneously, the State Department released a congressionally mandated semi-annual report on human rights abuses.

The US continues to "closely scrutinize" Iran's commitment to the Obama-era nuclear deal and the Trump administration is still developing a "comprehensive" Iran policy, Jones said. "Categorically", former Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman - who led the U.S. negotiating team at the Iran nuclear talks - said at a panel hosted by the Cato Institute on Tuesday, which included this reporter.

The targeted sanctions come on the same day the Trump administration said it would continue to waive other, broader sanctions on Iran, a move that was required to keep implementing the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.

"The announcement shows that the State Department, for the time being, will continue to abide by the JCPOA while still policing it aggressively just as had been the case under the Obama Administration", Ward said.
