Sanctions officially lifted on Iran


It has been a long time coming, but the devastating sanctions that were placed on the Islamic Republic of Iran have finally been lifted by the international community after the successful nuclear negotiations in the summer of last year.

In a statement released today, the Iranian Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif, confirmed that the crippling sanctions on Iran will finally be lifted as of Saturday, January 16th, 2016.

This news from Iran comes just 48 hours after the Iranian Navy seized 10 U.S. sailors that were caught violating the Iranian part of the Persian Gulf.

Western sanctions against Tehran have been officially lifted after the UN nuclear watchdog – the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) – released a statement saying Iran has fulfilled all of the measures required under its deal with six world powers.

"The report was submitted to IAEA board of governors and to the United Nations Security Council,IAEA director general Yukiya Amano said on Saturday, adding that "it was issued after agency inspectors on the ground verified that Iran has carried out all measures required under the JCPOA to enable implementation day to occur."

--I thank God for this blessing & bow to the greatness of the patient nation of Iran. Congrats on this glorious victory!
