The US and Iran relations is a hot topic globally. There are no official diplomatic relations between the United States of America and the Islamic Republic of Iran. Iran upholds an interests section at the Pakistani Embassy in Washington, D.C. While, the United States upholds an equivalent interests section at the Swiss Embassy in Tehran.
The relations between the US and Iran came to the limelight in the mid to- ate nineteenth century. At the start, Iran was of British and Russian colonial interests. On the other hand, the United States of America trusted a more dependable foreign power. Even the Americans Arthur Millspaugh and Morgan Shuster were selected treasurers-general by the Shahs of Iran at the time.
But the relationship between the two countries worsened gradually. Iranian citizens were momentarily forbidden from arriving at the United States of America by the supervisory order “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.” The establishment of Trump government worsened the relations furthermore.
On April 18, 2017, the Trump Management certified that Iran had persistently failed to comply with the “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action” JCPOA. Under this contract, Iran agreed remove its stock of medium-enriched uranium. US President Donald Trump also criticized the contract as “the worst deal ever negotiated” and a “disaster” that could result in a “nuclear holocaust”.
The Trump administration next asked European officials not to do business with Iran in the May 2017 Brussels Summit. His words somehow contradicted the JCPOA contract. In July 2017, Xiyue Wang, a Chinese American graduate student was penalized to 10 years in prison for “intrusion” in Iran. The arrest of two Hezbollah operatives in New York and Michigan escalated the tension between the two countries. The announcement of rewards for information about location, arrest, and conviction of Hezbollah’s senior-most leaders acted like the fuel in the fire.
