The American leader has decided to extend the state of emergency against Iran for another year.
The President of the United States Donald trump decided for a year to prolong the regime of unilateral sanctions against Iran imposed in 1979, reports RIA Novosti.
In comments, the White house says that relations between the US and Iran “not normal”, and in this regard, the American leader has decided “to extend the state of emergency declared by Executive order 12170 in relation to Iran.”
Recall that on 4 November 1979 by radical Islamist students on the pretext that diplomatic mission is a “nest of espionage and conspiracy against Iran,” stormed the U.S. Embassy and captured by different estimations, from 66 to 90 people.
The hostage crisis led to the rupture of diplomatic relations between the two countries, which have not been restored to this day.
Earlier it was reported that in July the U.S. government expanded sanctions against Iran on 18 positions due to the program of ballistic missiles and other illicit activities, and at the end of October, the U.S. Treasury has strengthened the sanctions list to include certain types of the armed forces of the Islamic revolutionary guard Corps.
