New US sanctions on Iran over ballistic missile program
A day after many sanctions on Iran were lifted under the international nuclear pact’s implementation, the US Treasury Sunday imposed new sanctions — over Iran's ballistic weapons. Eleven companies and individuals were targeted for procuring items of Iran’s missile program. The White House noted, “US statutory sanctions focused on Iran's support for terrorism, human rights abuses, and missile activities will remain in effect and continue to be enforced."
After the partial lifting of sanctions Saturday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran would not renew full diplomatic relations with the United States.
