Trump says ready to instate all Iran sanctions

  • US President Trump has said that the administration is ready to instate all US sanctions on Iran which were removed under the 2015 nuclear deal. In a presidential statement, he further said that it was the toughest sanctions regime ever imposed over Iran and also targeted energy, shipping and banking sectors of the country. The deal was withdrawn in May because it was considered defective at the core. Trump also called on the Iranian regime to abandon its nuclear ambitions and change its destructive behavior.
