This is while the deal between Iran and a group of six world powers, including the United States, has nothing to do with Iran's space or missile programs.
The U.S. on Friday announced new sanctions on six Iranian companies it said are key to the Islamic Republic's ballistic missile program - one day after Iran successfully launched a rocket-borne satellite into space, APAreports quoting Anadolu Agency.
"Space launch vehicles use technologies that are closely related to those of an intercontinental ballistic missile and this launch represents a threatening step by Iran", the Treasury Department said in a statement Friday. The action breaches a UN Security Council resolution due to the possibility that it could be used in ballistic missile development, according to the State Department.

This is done despite the rocket clearly not being a nuclear missile, Iran have a nuclear deal which precludes them being able to make a missile, and despite claims the rocket doesn't even work.
Iran's foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif responded to the new sanctions by accusing the US of violating the "the letter and spirit" of the nuclear deal.
"Iran is not, and will not be, developing nuclear weapons; so by definition can not develop anything created to be capable of delivering them", Zarif said on Twitter.
