U.S. announces new sanctions on Iran

Shafaq News / USA imposed on Monday new package of sanctions on Iran. 

"The sanctions include the Iranian defense minister and two others involved in Tehran’s nuclear and weapons program," US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a press conference with the ministers of defense, treasury and trade, which was followed by Shafaq News.

In turn, US Secretary of treasury Stephen Mnuchin said, "Washington imposes sanctions on a group of experts and officials in The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran."

In addition, US Secretary of commerce Wilbur Ross explained that "US sanctions target parties linked to Iranian nuclear activities," stressing "President Trump's strong commitment to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon."

" 5 scholars have been added to the list of sanctions against Iran, along with other entities," he added.

For his part, US Secretary of defense Mark Esper said, "The US is taking a new step to protect the Americans and our allies," stressing that "they are ready to respond to Iranian threats and continue to exercise maximum pressure on Tehran."

He added, "Iran is violating international resolutions by delivering banned weapons to groups such as Hezbollah and the Houthis."
