BAGHDAD, US President Donald Trump extended the sanctions imposed on Iran in 1995 for another year.

According to a White House statement said that Trump told the US Congress in a letter that he would extend for another year the "national state of emergency" in US-Iranian relations, which was announced by Bill Clinton, then President of the United States, on May 15, 1995.
