An air of optimism about the Trump administration’s ability to ease travel restrictions for some Middle Eastern nations has lifted, but a few other travel restrictions remain in place, with a number of new ones still in place.
As of March 17, the White House had reduced the number of countries it can designate as terror-prone, including Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Libya and North Korea.
But that change does not include countries that are listed as a state sponsor of terrorism, such as Syria, North Korea, Iran and Libya.
The president has not said whether he will use those changes to lift travel restrictions on Iran, Iraq, Libya or North Korea from the list of countries that the U.S. considers terrorist.
Critics say the change in the Middle Eastern travel restrictions will have no effect on the number or types of people who can visit or travel to those countries, because these restrictions are only a partial solution to the crisis.
Travel restrictions can be lifted only when the president determines the country’s security conditions have improved enough to allow such travel.
Since March 1, the U,S.
and six other countries have been able to designate certain countries as terror threats, according to the State Department.
These include Syria, Libya, Somalia and North Africa, which are now designated as a special state sponsor.
However, the administration has yet to decide which of these countries will be the next to be designated as terrorist-prone.
“It’s still a very long process,” said Robert Shifman, who researches terrorism at the Brookings Institution.
“But there are a lot of signs that the administration is moving forward.”
The State Department and other agencies are working to determine the next steps to be taken, Shifmann said.
In some cases, Trump has suggested that some of the countries being designated as terror threat countries are in the process of improving their security conditions.
During a March 9 White House meeting with foreign leaders, Trump said that the countries that have been designated as state sponsor are “coming back” to their previous security conditions, which is not what is happening.
Trump also said that he had asked the U.,S.
ambassador to Jordan to “do something that will make us all feel good” about Jordan’s progress.
However, Jordan did not respond to a request for comment about the progress Jordan has made toward meeting its terrorism designation requirements.
While the White’s list of terror-threat-prone countries is still limited to a few, the State Departments and other U.N. agencies have started to move toward a broader set of countries to be added to the list.
A new State Department rule is scheduled to be released in June that will allow the U:a.l. to designate a country as a terrorist-risk country.
Another rule that is expected to be finalized soon will allow U.s. companies to designate countries as a designated country, as long as they have “a strong relationship with the government of Iran, and there is no significant movement to destabilize the government or overthrow the government.”
Some U. S. lawmakers are worried that the change could lead to the U.’s reliance on foreign countries to provide some of its foreign assistance.
U.S.-Iran relations are at a critical juncture.
The Iranian nuclear deal reached in July 2018 eased some of those sanctions on U. s. sanctions, but the U still cannot lift them on the ground without getting permission from the Iranian government.
This week, the Trump White House sent a letter to Iran, asking the Iranian regime to refrain from any destabilizing behavior.
Other recent U. N. sanctions imposed on Iran included an asset freeze, travel bans, travel restrictions and financial penalties for businesses doing business with Iran.
Shifman said that while the new Trump administration does not appear to have made much progress on the diplomatic front, he thinks the State Dept. will be able to improve on the terror designation list.
