The United States is again imposing sanctions on Iran due to the lack of progress in solving the problem of the nuclear program. This is reported in a statement by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the website of the US Department of State.

On August 20, the United States notified the UN of Iran's non-compliance with its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on the Iranian Nuclear Program (JCPOA).

"This notification triggered the 30-day process leading to the snapback of previously terminated UN sanctions, which became effective at 8pm Eastern Daylight Time on September 19. This means that starting today, all of the provisions of UNSCRs 1696, 1737, 1747, 1803, 1835, and 1929 that were terminated by UNSCR 2231 are back in effect. Furthermore, the measures contained in paragraphs 7, 8, and 16 to 20 of UNSCR 2231 are now terminated," reads the message. 

Pursuant to US rights under Resolution 2231, the United States would initiate the process of returning all previously terminated UN sanctions, including the arms embargo.

In the coming days, the United States will announce a number of additional measures to strengthen the implementation of UN sanctions and bring violators to justice.
