US economic sanctions as an unusual weapon in economic warfare have targeted Iran's economic security. In addition to imposing sanctions on various sectors of the Iranian economy, the US has always sought to increase the efficiency of these sanctions. The present study seeks to answer two questions. 1. What are the US strategies for smartening sanctions? 2. What are the solutions to Iran's asymmetric confrontation aimed at reducing the effectiveness of sanctions? The innovation of the study is that the issue of sanctions' smartening has not been considered. The research method of this article is analytical and data collection has been done through documentary and library studies. The results of the study show that US strategies to streamline sanctions include: focus on sanctions on individuals and their inclusion in the SDN list, recognizing the final beneficiaries and advising companies to have the maximum rigor, the move by the United States to combinate nuclear and terrorist sanctions, use the capacity of the think tanks to identify vulnerable sectors in Iran to increase the accuracy of sanctions impact and using face-to-face conversations of US officials to convince countries and large companies not to engage with Iran. In spite of the fact that Iran does not have the ability to deal symmetrically with these tools, it seems that adopting strategies to rebuild and diversify means of transferring funds can greatly affect US sanctions. Specifically, there are some suggestions in this area:1. International Financial Messeging Systems, 2. International Banking Platforms, and 3. Correspondent Relationships.

UAE foreign policy has been accompanied by pattern and behavioral changes since 1971. Despite the continuous crises throughout the Middle East and the Gulf, the federal nature of the United Arab Emirates has created a constructive foreign policy that has caused the survival of this vulnerable country. In other words, the United Arab Emirates is a country of multiple foreign policies. A study of the UAE's foreign policy since its establishment in 2007 shows that special issues and interests have remained constant throughout this period. At the same time, changes in the world arena and transformations in the structure of the international system, particularly the fall of the Soviet Union and the emergence of a unipolar system, have had a direct impact on the intervention of other major powers in the Persian Gulf. In response to these changes, the patterns by which the United Arab Emirates pursues its foreign policy interests in the region have changed; Nevertheless, these patterns are identifiable from the core points as important components of UAE foreign policy. This article seeks to answer the key question of what pattern developments UAE foreign policy has undergone from 1971 to 2017. Such pattern developments of foreign policy include Arab commitment and Islamic co-existence, peaceful and impartial treatment of regional issues, pro-Arab, pro-Western, moderation and commitment to security participation. Indeed, regional and global policy in the UAE is a function of the pattern developments of foreign policy. Using library resources and a descriptive-explanatory method, this paper attempts to identify a particular style in the way the UAE pursues its foreign policy goals by examining the foreign policy developments since its establishment.
