United States sanctions Iran after space launch

Share

The United States on Friday imposed new sanctions targeting Iran´s ballistic missile program, one day after Tehran tested a satellite-launch rocket - an act that Washington had called "provocative".

The sanctions target six Iranian subsidiaries of the Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group. The move enables the US government to block any company property under its jurisdiction and prevents USA citizens from doing business with the firms.

Before the passing of the particular bill, many experts believe that Iran might retaliate to it, and it does but verbally with a plan to fortify its ballistic missile program.

Haverford Trust Company decreased Fulton Finl Corp Pa (NASDAQ:FULT) stake by 24,709 shares to 22,918 valued at $431,000 in 2016Q4. Rothschild Asset Management Inc downsized its ownership by selling 986 shares a decrease of 0.1% from 03/31/2017 to 06/30/2017.

The economic penalties are "in response to Iran's continued provocative actions, such as yesterday's launch of the Simorgh space launch vehicle", the Treasury Department said.

The six Shahid Hemmat units targeted by the USA sanctions manufacture missile components, missile airframes, liquid-propellant ballistic missile engines, liquid propellant, guidance and control systems. Zarif contrasted that with the USA, which he suggested was not complying with "the letter and spirit" of the deal.

North Korea and Iran were slapped by sanctions over their respective nuclear development.

The measure put President Donald Trump, who has sought better ties with Russian Federation, in a tough position, forcing him to either sign the bill into law or anger his party by vetoing it. The State Department says that type of technology is inherently created to be able to carry a nuclear payload. He said the United States will continue countering Iran's ballistic missile programme including Thursday's "provocative space launch".

President Donald Trump, who this month reluctantly recertified Iran's compliance with the nuclear deal, told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published this week that Washington had been "extremely nice" to Tehran by saying it was complying with the terms of the deal.
