Tensions between Washington and Tehran have mounted following Trump’s withdrawal from the landmark Iran nuclear agreement in 2018, calling it “the worst deal ever.”

The 2015 agreement lifted sanctions on Iran. In exchange for sanctions relief, Iran accepted limits on its nuclear program until the terms expire in 2025.

Following Washington’s exit from the nuclear deal, other signatories of the pact ⁠— France, Germany, the UK, Russia, and China ⁠— tried to keep the agreement alive.

US Government on Monday Imposes new sanctions on 27 Iranian Entities, Individuals. The Trump administration imposed the sanctions after the failure of its efforts to reinstate UN sanctions against Iran.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday said European leaders “haven’t lifted a finger” to halt arms sales to Iran after they rejected a unilateral US declaration that UN sanctions on Tehran were back in force.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says he cannot take any action on the US’ claim that all UN sanctions on Iran had been reimposed due to uncertainty regarding the issue.
