Tehran residents reacted to newly imposed US sanctions against Iran on Tuesday. Carpet sellers at the capital's Grand Bazaar said that the sanctions «affect everything, but if people and the government make an effort, they can get the sanctions removed.» Currency traders hoped the measures would not affect them unduly. One resident was optimistic that Iran could withstand the sanctions. «If... Еще we can sort out these sanctions, join forces as a nation, and if the government helps, we can get past this stage too,» he said. Earlier in the year, Trump announced that the US would withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal, known officially as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and reimpose sanctions. The threat became real on Monday when Washington introduced measures affecting financial, automotive, aviation and metals sectors, in a bid to ramp up economic pressure on Tehran.
