DUBAI (Reuters) — The Iranian rial fell to a record low against the U.S. dollar on the unofficial market on Sunday, a day after the U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration declared all United Nations sanctions on Tehran had been restored.

Iran’s rial has lost about 49% of its value in 2020. The dollar was offered for as much as 273,000 rials, up from 267,800 rials on Saturday, according to foreign exchange site Bonbast.com, which tracks the unofficial market.

Iran has dismissed the U.S. move as “void and illegal” and U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the Security Council on Saturday he cannot take any action on the U.S. declaration because “there would appear to be uncertainty” on the issue.

The three European parties to the nuclear deal — France, Britain and Germany — said in a statement on Sunday that any decision or action taken to re-impose U.N. sanctions “would be incapable of legal effect” because Washington used a mechanism agreed under a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, which the United States quit in 2018.

However, Trump plans to issue an executive order allowing him to impose U.S. sanctions on anyone violating sanctions against Iran.

  • It would not surprise me to find out that the increase in value of Ether and Bitcoin is because some Iranians are using those crypto-currencies to hedge against inflation. Venezuelans have been doing this for several years.
