Iran’s state run television may come under U.S. sanctions

According to Mikrofon news agency (MHA), United States of America is possibly preparing to impose serious sanctions on Iran’s state run television (Seda ve Sima), some news agencies report.

The Guardian quotes a reliable source that the U.S. President Donald Trump has been convinced to refrain imposing sanctions on Iran’s Central Bank, but to put the organizations like (Seda ve Sima), under broad embargo.

The source has told the Guardian that this will be a symbolic act with a strong message for Iran, that will not impose economic pressures on the people of Iran like the previous sanctions. The sanctions will restrict organization’s ability to purchase international content such as advanced satellites for live coverages.

The Guardian says all the local media organizations affiliated with (Seda ve Sima) may be affected by the sanctions and the bank accounts for them may be frozen.

Iran’s state run television came under sanctions by the U.S. in 2013, but Barak Obama, former president of the U.S. and Donald Trump the current president had suspended the implementation of the sanction by signing the document of sanctions exemption.
