Tensions have ramped up between Tehran and Washington after the American president in May fulfilled his election campaign promise and pulled his country from the 2015 multilateral nuclear deal with Iran, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Since its withdrawal from the JCPOA, Washington has sought to build up international pressure on Iran. 

Furthermore, the US administration introduced punitive measures — known as secondary sanctions — against third countries doing business with Iran.
