- The United States announced fresh sanctions and measures against entities and individuals related to Iranian nuclear and conventional weapons programs. This latest move came shortly after the Trump administration’s claim that all pre-2015 UN sanctions against Iran had been restored according to the “snapback” mechanism under UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which endorsed the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The United States unilaterally invoked the “snapback” after its failed and isolated attempt in the UN Security Council to extend the arms embargo against Tehran.
