US Maximum Pressure Campaign Vs. Iran

In about two weeks’ time on September 20th, the global sanctions on Iran – which was lifted five years ago and included an embargo on conventional arms – will snap back into force due to an American decision to veto any United Nations Security Council action to avoid it. This is the latest move in U.S. President Donald Trump’s so-called ‘Maximum Pressure Campaign’ against the Ayatollah regime in the Islamic Republic. In defiance of Washington’s move, Tehran unveiled domestically produced long range ballistic and cruise missiles while simultaneously seeking international support through striking a deal with the International Atomic Energy Agency.
