A former member of Iranian nuclear negotiating team Mostafa Douvlatyar said no new sanction has been imposed against Iran and Geneva deal between Iran and the P5+1 has not been cancelled, ISNA news agency reported on Dec. 14.

"The agreement has not been cancelled and it still exists," he said, adding, "Announcing the names of new companies does not mean cancelling Geneva deal and this is the same position taken by Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman."

Asked whether Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) countries can replace considering the sanctions, he said, "Off course no country can replace another one but ALBA countries have great potentials for cooperation."

The US State Department and Treasury added 19 companies and individuals in the Europe and Asia to its sanction list against Iran, saying that these individuals and corporations cooperated with Iran's Mahan Air.
