Iran to Sanction US Individuals for 'Backing Daesh, al-Qaeda, Zionist Regime'
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — International companies are willing to work with Iran, but due to different political factions, reaching a final agreement takes time, IRNA news agency reported, citing a statement by Zamaninia.

Foreign oil companies held negotiations on cooperating with Iran in oil industry after sanctions were lifted and the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was signed in July 2015. Under the agreement, Iran pledged to curb its nuclear program in exchange for the sanctions relief.

The United States imposed new sanctions on Iran on Friday after Tehran's recent missile test on January 29. The sanctions apply to 25 individuals and entities for alleged support of Iran’s ballistic missile program. The sanctions also affect US oil companies that are not allowed to participate in Iran's oil tenders.
