On Wednesday, the US imposed fresh sanctions on Iran, relating to iron, steel, aluminium, and copper. US President Donald Trump stressed that Washington was putting "other nations on notice" not to import Iranian metals.

Prior to that, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani sent a letter to Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) signatory states, notifying them that Tehran would give the parties of the accord 60 days to return to the negotiating table and ensure that Iran's interests are protected under the agreement. Otherwise, he said, Tehran will resume uranium enrichment prohibited under the agreement.

On 8 May 2018, Trump announced his decision to leave the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and reinstate wide-ranging sanctions on Tehran, including secondary sanctions against companies and financial institutions of countries that do business with the Islamic Republic.
