The US travel ban on visitors from Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen has been in effect since February 4, with a halt on US citizens and those with US passports from entering the US.
However, the ban on US residents and residents with valid visas from Iran and Syria, the majority of which are citizens of Iran, has not been lifted.
However, the US government has issued a visa waiver program for residents of these countries.
Travelers from these three countries have been banned from entering for 72 hours and those from Libya for 72.
The travel restrictions in place since March 1 have also been extended to apply to those from these countries and the citizens of countries that were not included in the list.
The US Department of State on Friday confirmed that the travel restrictions are still in effect.
In a tweet, the department said that there was a “lack of clarity” in the ban.
“The US is not lifting travel restrictions for Iranian nationals and those on visas from Syria,” the State Department tweeted on Friday.
“Those restrictions have not been in place for 72hrs.”
The Trump administration has made no official announcement on the suspension of the travel bans from Iran or Syria, and there are no indications of a further extension of the ban from the Trump administration.
Iran has denied any involvement in the attack on the US embassy in Tehran, in which an American pastor and four Americans were killed in November 2016.
The State Department has said the attack was a terrorist attack.
In a statement, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said Iran was ready to cooperate with the US in order to defend its interests and to fight terrorism.
“Iran and the US have agreed to continue dialogue and the process of a comprehensive solution,” the statement read.
“The US will continue to provide us with information about any possible terrorist groups in the region and we will support any efforts of the US to establish an independent and transparent investigation into the events that led to the attack.”US officials, however, have said the US has found no evidence that Iran was involved in the embassy attack.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Friday called for an immediate end to the travel suspension.
He also asked Washington to stop making new claims that Tehran was behind the attack.
“We demand the US stop making unfounded claims against Iran, and we demand the suspension from the travel and visa restrictions from Iran,” Rouhani said in a statement.
