US State and Treasury Departments Slap First-Ever Sanctions on Iran’s Space Program


(Worthy News) - Both the US State and Treasury Departments announced on Tuesday the slapping of sanctions on Iran’s space agency for the first time, accusing it of developing weapons of mass destruction and other weapon capabilities, such as space-launch vehicle technologies, which the State Department alleged were “virtually identical and interchangeable with those used in ballistic missiles.”

“Iran’s civilian space-launch vehicle program allows it to gain experience with various technologies necessary for development of an ICBM, including staging, ignition of upper-stage engines, and control of a multiple-stage missile throughout flight,” said the State Department, adding that the regime’s space program violated UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which endorsed the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which the United States withdrew from in May 2018, reimposing sanctions lifted under it alongside enacting new financial penalties against the regime.
