The United States has reimposed full sanctions on Iran declared Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Saturday evening. The corrective measures are happening even though other nations under the original sanctions plan are not going along. “The Maximum Pressure campaign will continue”, said the Secretary.

The Trump administration’s penalties announced late Saturday include an arms embargo, a ban on uranium enrichment and reprocessing-related activities, a prohibition on ballistic missile testing and development and sanctions on the transfer of nuclear- and missile-related technologies, reported Just The News.

“The United States expects all UN Member States to fully comply with their obligations to implement these measures,” Pompeo said in a statement, decrying anew the Obama-era nuclear deal with Tehran as a dangerous failure of appeasement. 

“The return of sanctions today is a step toward international peace and security. The 2015 nuclear deal did not induce Iran to join the community of nations as promised,” he added. “Instead, the mullahs took their newfound wealth and used it to foment death and destruction from Yemen to Iraq to Lebanon and Syria – a predictable outcome.”

“The greatest threat to peace in the Middle East comes from Islamic Republic of Iran, whose violent efforts to spread revolution have killed thousands and upended the lives of millions of innocent people,” he said. “History shows appeasement only emboldens such regimes.”

The Iranian government was not happy and said so at the United Nations.

If the other signers of the 2015 Iran Nuclear deal ignore the rollback provisions, then why should any other agreement with them be honored?
