Many of these sanctions are targeted at the nuclear, petroleum, banking and insurance industries, also against individuals, organizations and companies that have been identified by and not limited to; the United Nations, European Union, United States, Canada and Australia. Comprehensive sanctions have been imposed on people and entities in Iran.
