Sanctions regimes on Iran have proved very effective and critical over some past years and have taken a serious toll on Iran's economy and people. In 1995, The United States imposed embargoes against Iran and enlarged them to include corporations dealing with the Iranian government. In 23 December 2006 the UN Security Council passed 1696 and 1937 Resolution and imposed severe sanctions after Iran denied to set aside its uranium enrichment program. On the onset of sanctions on Iran, United States initially targeted its exports of refined Petroleum products, Oil, Gas and Petrochemicals, and Business dealings with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and also it included shipping, web-hosting services insurance banking and transactions (along with the Iranís Central Bank), for commercial enterprises, and also the domain name of registration services.. Since the Islamic revolution of 1979, the United States has led international exertions and heavy efforts to use deteriorating embargoes on Iranian policies  along with the Iranís uranium enrichment program, which was approximated by Western governments that Iranís developing capability of nuclear enrichment program would lead to produce nuclear weapons. But Iran forcefully convinced that its nuclear program is for civilian purposes, including medical and generating electricity etc.
Key words: UN, US, sanctions, nuclear program, Economy, energy, Iran.
