This new arrangement would be separate from the accord itself and would include provisions to reimpose nuclear sanctions should Iran come within a year of “nuclear breakout”.

The following individuals have been added to OFAC’s SDN List:

LARIJANI, Sadegh Amoli (a.k.a. LARIJANI, Sadegh; a.k.a. LARIJANI, Sadeq; a.k.a. LARIJANI, Sadeq Ardeshir; a.k.a.
