Iran's President Hassan Rouhani slams Trump's over its reinstatement of economic sanctions.
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has slammed the United States over its
reestablishment of economic sanctions.

He depicted the measures, which happened medium-term, as "pshychological fighting" which expected to "sow division among Iranians".

The approvals focus on different divisions, with assist corrective activity arranged against Iran's oil exchange.#
The European Union has spoken out against the measures, vowing to protect firms doing "legitimate business".


It follows the US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as the Iran nuclear deal, earlier this year.

The deal, negotiated during the presidency of Barack Obama, saw Iran limit its controversial nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

Mr Trump says the deal is "one-sided" and he believes renewed economic pressure will force Iran to agree to a new deal and end its "malign" activities.

What are the sanctions?

US President Donald Trump signed an executive order which brought sanctions back into place at 00:01 EDT (04:01 GMT) on Tuesday. They target:

The purchase or acquisition of US banknotes by Iran's government
Iran's trade in gold and other precious metals
Graphite, aluminium, steel, coal, and software used in industrial processes
Transactions related to the Iranian rial currency
Activities relating to Iran's issuance of sovereign debt
Iran's automotive sector
