US renews Iran sanctions waiver for civilian nuclear activities

The waiver renewal comes as the United States and Iran consider a final text of an agreement to revive the 2015 nuclear deal.

The Biden administration has notified Congress that it renewed a sanctions waiver allowing international cooperation on some of Iran’s civilian nuclear projects, a State Department spokesperson confirmed to Al-Monitor.

The waiver, which was set to expire this month, permits foreign companies to conduct certain non-proliferation work at Iranian nuclear sites without incurring US sanctions. Its renewal was expected, and the State Department notified lawmakers on Friday, congressional aides said.
