The President of the United States, Donald Trump, said he will impose new sanctions on Iran in the iron, steel, aluminum and copper sectors. The decision is due to the partial withdrawal of Tehran from the agreement made in 2015 to contain the nuclear program between countries. The tensions between Americans and Iranians grew in April, when Trump announced that the U.S. would return to impose sanctions on Iran's oil-importing countries.
The U.S. government has stated that the new sanctions focus on revenues from the sale to the exterior of industrial metals, equivalent to 10% of American exports. The communiqué also emphasizes that Tehran should expect additional measures if it does not change its decision. In order to isolate Iranians from the market, the U.S. Treasury Department requests that companies and individuals lock their negotiations with Iran in the metals sector in up to 90 days.
