US lifts sanctions on 3 former Iranian officials and two companien

The Treasury and State Departments lifted sanctions “on three former government of Iran officials, and two companies previously involved in the purchase, acquisition, sale, transport, or marketing of Iranian petrochemical products, as a result of a verified change in status or behavior on the part of the sanctioned parties,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement.

State Department spokesperson Ned Price told reporters at a briefing Thursday that there was “absolutely no connection” between the delisting and the negotiations in Vienna over fate of the 2015 nuclear deal.
