Iran activists call for world action against US sanctions

Tehran, Nov 9, IRNA – Iranian artists and civilian activists on Friday called for world action against the US' sanctions.

In a letter, Iranian civilian activists and artists urged people across the world to raise their voice against the illegal US' sanctions against the Iranian nation.

The people of Iran will pay the price, the Iranian activists said in their letter.

The US President Donald Trump announced early May that Washington would pull out of Iran nuclear deal and reinstate sanctions, which had been lifted under the accord.

The first round of the sanctions snapped back into place in August, with the second round, targeting the energy and oil sectors, that took effect on November 5.

This is while other signatories to the deal (i.e. Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia) have thus far criticized Washington's unilateral move and repeatedly stressed their commitment to the deal.
