Tensions between the United States and Iran have worsened after the US withdrawal. of the nuclear agreement that had been agreed with Tehran in 2015, together with other nations such as Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom and Germany.
After the break of the pact, the US administration once again imposed sanctions against Iran, which have affected the economy of Tehran and the devaluation of the Iranian currency.
