Trump ex­tends sanc­tions re­lief, penal­ties to Iran

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - MORNING BRIEFING -

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.
