The US unilaterally Tuesday re-applied the harsh sanctions lifted after Iran signed the 2015 nuclear deal with the Obama administration and five other countries. They cover the purchase or US dollars, trade in gold and other precious metals; industrial metals and computer software and the automobile sector. The next round on Nov. 4, will hit Iran’s oil experts and banking. When the Trump administration quit the nuclear deal in May the other five signatories stayed in. The UK, France and Germany “deeply regretted” the US action.
