The United States lifts sanctions on two Iranian companies


In the United States, the administration of President Joe Biden lifted sanctions imposed by former President Donald Trump on two missile manufacturers based in Iran.


A written statement issued by the US Treasury stated that the sanctions imposed on the Iranian company “Mammut Industries” and its missile manufacturers, “Mammut Diesel”, were lifted.

The Trump administration placed the companies in question on its sanctions list in September 2020 on the grounds that they had “contributed to Iran’s nuclear business and malign and destabilizing actions in the region.”

It is noteworthy that the decision of the Biden administration came after the resumption of indirect talks between Washington and Tehran regarding returning to the nuclear agreement.
