Iran Sanctions President Trump in Parting Shot at Departing Administration

Iran Sanctions President Trump in Parting Shot at Departing Administration

On Wednesday, Joe Biden took oath to become 46th President of the United States of America.

"The ball is in the US court now", Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in a televised cabinet meeting Tuesday.

"Someone for whom all of his four years bore no fruit other than injustice and corruption and causing problems for his own people and the world".

The Iranian Foreign Ministry "added a number of American individuals to its sanctions list for committing terrorist crimes, promoting and supporting terrorism, which is a serious threat to regional and worldwide peace and security, and for violating basic rules and fundamental principles of global law, including human rights", Saeed Khatibzadeh, the ministry's spokesman, said on Tuesday.

In May 2018, Trump ordered his country's withdrawal from this multilateral treaty, and in view of the Europeans passivity in keeping the convention alive, the Islamic Republic reduced its nuclear commitments, under Articles 26 and 36 of the nuclear deal.

"Trump, [Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo & Co. are relegated to the dustbin of history in disgrace", Javad Zarif said on Twitter shortly after Biden took office.

The sanctions targeted Iran's vital oil sales and worldwide banking ties, plunging its economy into a deep recession.

"Tyrant Trump's political career and his ominous reign are over today and his "maximum pressure" policy on Iran has completely failed", Rouhani said. As for the Iranian missile program and regional activities, Zarif noted that the nuclear deal signatories had agreed from the outset to keep the two issues out of the accord.

Since 2019, Tehran has suspended its compliance with most of the limits set by the agreement.

Mr Biden has said the United States will rejoin the pact, which includes restrictions on Iran's nuclear work, if Tehran resumes strict compliance.

Tehran has repeatedly called on Washington to lift sanctions first and respect its own obligations under the agreement.

Iranian authorities say that if all parties return to the original agreement, the Persian country will return to what was previously signed.
