Washington isolated on Iran

China Daily | Updated: 2018-08-10 07:40

The US Trump administration reinstated the first phase of sanctions on Iran on Tuesday as scheduled, prohibiting the Iranian government from purchasing US dollars, gold and other precious metals and prohibiting transactions related to Iran's currency or activities related to its sovereign debt.

Such sanctions are highly targeted. The financial sector is the sector that most influences Iran's economy and people's livelihoods after oil, and all the industries under US sanctions this time are the materials Teheran needs most for domestic development, such as graphite, steel, aluminum, coal and so on.

However, the unilateral action by Washington at a time when Iran has not violated its nuclear deal lacks a moral basis and legal justification.
