Iran receives more airplanes ahead of renewed U.S. sanctions

The Grand Bazaar in Tehran Iran

Historic deal on Iran's nuclear program from 2015 provides for the removal of sanctions against Iran in exchange for limiting its opportunities for the enrichment and storage of nuclear materials.

On Monday, the White House said the president's tweet shows he is not going to tolerate critical rhetoric from Iran and insisted the us leader isn't escalating tensions between the two countries.

Despite opposition from European allies, Trump in May pulled the United States out of a 2015 deal between world powers and Tehran under which worldwide sanctions were lifted in return for curbs on Iran's nuclear programme.

Pompeo said the United States wants "the Iranian people to have a strong voice of who their leadership will be", although he stopped short of calling for regime change in Tehran.

Trump administration officials also argued that because the USA lifted sanctions against Iran as part of the agreement, it in effect stripped Washington of one of its most powerful tools to penalize Tehran.

In short, Trump withdrew from the Iran deal, likely imposed tremendous cost and stress on Tehran's economy, and Iran has responded by staying in the deal and trying to portray itself as a good actor worthy of the world's support against U.S. hegemony.

CBS reported that Iranians have held protests across the country ahead of the new sanctions and as the nation's currency plummets, blaming Iran's leaders for the economic situation.

Nevertheless, Iranians have been demonstrating since December 2017 against the high cost of living and the systematic corruption within the system.

Trump administration officials say the sanctions are being restored starting Monday in an effort to change the Iranian regime's behavior. Iranian oil sales are a crucial source of hard currency.

That's according to two European diplomats involved in negotiations with the Trump administration over how sanctions would be re-imposed. Today protesters in Shiraz were attacked with tear gas by security forces during strikes, Express reported.

Supporters of the Iran agreement have long argued that the USA departure would alienate European allies who partnered with the U.S.in the negotiations. While the Trump administration has said it wants to cut Iranian oil exports to zero by November 4, most analysts viewed that target as unlikely. It will also face crippling restrictions by USA financial authorities on its ability to buy gold and other precious metals, be prevented from selling Iranian debt, and banned from trading industrial metals.

He later said in a message on Twitter that the United States was "deeply concerned about reports of Iranian regime's violence against unarmed citizens" and urged respect for human rights.

USA officials last week said Iran carried out a similar exercise, though Tehran did not immediately acknowledge it.
