Iran denies reports of temporary lifting of part of sanctions

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman denied reports about temporary lifting of part of sanctions against the Islamic Republic, stressing that according to the Iran nuclear deal, the United States is required to lift all sanctions reimposed on Tehran following its pullout from the agreement.

Rejecting the media reports quoting an anonymous source about the temporary lifting of part of the so-called non-targeted sanctions against Iran, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi called such comments as unrealistic reports, the purpose of which is not clear, IRNA reported.

“It is not unlikely that the failure of the US policy of sanctions to be a subject of controversy between Europe and the US, but what relates to the Islamic Republic of Iran is that the US unilateral sanctions are illegal and cruel, and according to the JCPOA and the (UNSC) Resolution 2231, the US must remove and nullify all of the sanctions it has reimposed after its withdrawal from the JCPOA,” Mousavi added.

US President Donald Trump abandoned the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in 2018 and reimposed sanctions on Tehran as part of a “maximum pressure” campaign aimed at forcing Tehran to renegotiate a new deal.
