Trump extends sanctions relief, penalties to Iran
The Trump administration on
Thursday extended sanctions relief to Iran, avoiding imminent action that could implode the landmark
2015 nuclear deal, even as President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson accused Tehran of not respecting the entire agreement.
The extensions of the waivers on nuclear sanctions were accompanied by new penalties imposed against 11 Iranian people and companies accused of supporting Iran’s ballistic missile program or involvement in cyberattacks.
