White House national security adviser John Bolton said Washington could impose new sanctions on Iran after targeting the oil and financial sectors.
“I think you will see more sanctions over time and a stricter application,” he said at a brief press conference in Paris, where 70 heads of state are expected to mark the centenary of the end of World War I.
Bolton said the sanctions had been significant for Iran. On the economic front, the Iranian currency is at its lowest level, inflation is huge and the country is in recession.The goal continued to reduce Iran’s oil exports. We worked with Saudi Arabia, the UAE and other oil-producing countries to check the increase in production and not to affect customers who buy Iranian oil.
The nuclear deal was signed in Vienna on July 14, 2015 between Iran and the five permanent members of the Security Council (the United States, China, Russia, France and Britain) and Germany.
And allowed the end of Tehran’s long isolation by lifting a section of international economic sanctions. In return, Iran agreed to limit its program to ensure that it does not seek to acquire nuclear weapons.
On May 8, Trump announced the withdrawal from the agreement and the re-imposition of sanctions on Iran.
In another context, Bolton refuted the idea that the United States is isolationist, saying Bolton’s decision to participate in international celebrations marking the end of the First World War shows his “commitment to common defense.”
Bolton added that throughout the history of the United States ‘we have never been isolationists’.
Asked about the US decision to withdraw from the MNF, Bolton said technological advances had covered the treaty since its conclusion in the 1980s. Bolton confirmed that Russia was violating the treaty, which Moscow denies.
