Canada joins U.S. and EU in imposing stricter sanctions on Iran

Canada will restrict access to materials and technology that could be used for nuclear weapons

Canada has announced sanctions against Iran that will restrict access to uranium, helicopters and other materials that could be used to build weapons, Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon has announced. The fourth round of international sanctions follows a resolution by the UN Security Council on June 9 that was opposed by Brazil and Turkey. The sanctions will also target financial institutions with suspected ties to Iran’s nuclear program. Iran continues to deny accusations that it is trying to build nuclear weapons.
