Tehran: The United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union have imposed new sanctions on Iran, accusing it of violently suppressing nationwide protests over the death of young girl Mehsa Amini in police custody.
According to the international news agency, the United States has imposed sanctions on Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps “Cooperative Foundation” and some top Iranian officials.
Similarly, the United Kingdom also imposed sanctions on 5 more Iranian officials, increasing its list to 50 Iranian individuals and organizations.
The European Union also blacklisted 37 Iranian officials and imposed a visa ban while freezing the assets of some entities.
The United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union have said that the reason for these further sanctions is the violence against the ongoing anti-government protests in Iran and their suppression by force.
Meanwhile, Iran has warned that some European Union officials should not dream of ending efforts to restore the 2015 nuclear deal.
It should be noted that the new sanctions on Iran have come after the President of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi, rejected the request of the world leaders and reiterated his determination to continue to identify, try and punish the protesters.
