U.S. Offers Iran Sanction Waivers

Certain countries will be able to continue to work in nuclear sector.

On Monday the White House renewed waivers on sanctions against Iran, to help nations around the world cope with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Russian, Chinese, and European companies will be allowed to continue to work on the Iranian civilian nuclear facilities without incurring American penalties. These waivers are a holdover from the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal in 2015.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stressed that this continuation was not an endorsement of the Iranian government or an indication of future American action. A State Department statement said, “Iran’s continued expansion of nuclear activities is unacceptable. The regime’s nuclear extortion is among the greatest threats to international peace and security.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Pompeo to be led by God on how best to conduct diplomacy with Iran.
  • For the White House to partner with nations around the world to bring peace.
  • That open lines of communication between Iran and the U.S. would be established.
