The United States has implemented a series of sanctions against Iran, after withdrawing from a 2015 nuclear deal, that was identified by President Trump as deeply flawed. While the ultimate aim seeks to put Tehran's economy under substantial pressure, the Trump Administration decided to provide eight countries with waivers, which are due to expire in a few weeks-time. Tehran, on its part, is working extensively to defy American efforts – however – by seeking out international support in blocking Washington's maneuvers.
