Tension between Iran and the U.S. has escalated with the U.S. imposing further sanctions on the oil rich country.

The relationship between the two countries has deteriorated since US President Donald Trump came into office and violated the Iran Nuclear Deal.

Iran had promised that it would remain faithful to the deal as long as the other parties maintained their commitment, but it has now threatened to violate certain conditions and increase its uranium enrichment program if other nations can’t uphold the agreement.
