The United States on Tuesday extended the “national state of emergency” for Iran for another year to address the “unusual threat” it poses to domestic security, foreign policy, the economy and the interests of Washington, a law enforcement agency dated 14th, 1979, in the midst of the hostage crisis when the US embassy in Tehran was taken over.
“Our relations with Iran have not yet normalized and the process of implementing the January 19, 1981 agreements is under way. For this reason, the national emergency declared on November 14, 1979, and those decided on that day to address the said emergency, must remain in force beyond November 14, 2021, ”says the Executive Ordinance.
The historically anchored Washington-Tehran relationship is set to have a new episode in Vienna on November 28, in which the United States is expected to address the possibility of re-entry into the nuclear deal, which was signed in 2015 and broken with the arrival of Donald Trump, in the White House.
Since that exit, Iran has declared its refusal to perform some of the duties it assumed by signing this agreement, despite the fact that they have always stipulated a change of attitude should the United States end its economic coercion and return. to the nuclear pact.
