The U.S. State Department approved waivers of some sanctions on Iran as part of the 2015 nuclear accord in order to "maintain flexibility" in its Iran policy. The most recent sanctions waivers were issued as the U.S Treasury Department sanctioned 11 individuals and entities supporting Iran's ballistic missile program, Quds Force, or Iranian cyber attacks.
