The United States allowed Russian, Chinese and European companies to continue their work in Iran without sanctions.
US State Department spokesman Morgan Ortagos said exceptions to the US sanctions have been extended four times over two months, according to Interfax.
“The United States has increased the restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program for another five days. It is noted that the continued expansion of Iran’s nuclear activities is unacceptable,” the report said.
We will continue to use our wide range of diplomatic and economic tools to prevent destabilizing activities in Iran’s proliferation. “
“We will continue to closely monitor all developments in Iran’s nuclear program and adjust these restrictions whenever we can.”
According to Al Jazeera, the exceptions will affect Russian, Chinese and European companies, allowing them to continue their work at Iran’s nuclear facilities without being subject to US sanctions.
