Iran: Tehran residents react to looming reinstatement of US sanctions

Residents in Tehran expressed their concerns about the consequences of the soon to be re-imposed US sanctions in the Iranian capital on Friday. One resident said that sanctions «decrease the quality of life as people now cannot obtain things they used to obtain easily before,» adding that «medicaments are hard to come by because of sanctions.» Another resident said that the Iranians «have... Еще essentially become numb to these sanctions that Mr. Trump is reinstating. Since the Islamic Revolution, every year or every two to three years, they have said that new sanctions are being imposed.» All of the US sanctions, lifted under the 2015 Iran nuclear accord (also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA), are set to come back into effect on Monday. Washington has been gradually reinstating sanctions against Iran after it pulled out of the nuclear deal in May.
