US to begin easing sanctions on Iran
WASHINGTON - The White House says the U.S. will begin easing economic sanctions on Iran after Tehran began shutting down its most sensitive nuclear work Monday.
Iran's move was part of a landmark deal struck with world powers to ease concerns over its nuclear program and provide for the partial removal of economic sanctions that have crippled the country's economy.
White House spokesman Jay Carney adds in a statement that Washington will continue to aggressively enforce sanctions that will remain in effect.
The United Nations nuclear agency has confirmed that higher-level uranium enrichment at a facility in central Iran has been stopped.
