U.S. announces new sanctions against Iran

NHK reported at noon that the Department of Treasury announced on Thursday that it is imposing new economic sanctions on three Iranian entities and six Iranian individuals for their involvement in the funding of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, saying that these are the first sanctions to be imposed since President Trump announced the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. The network quoted the President as saying in a speech in Indiana on Thursday: “We cannot allow them to have nuclear weapons…We have to be able to go into their military bases to see whether or not they’re cheating.” According to the network, the President also said he will seek a new deal beneficial to the U.S. The network said while the President is set to continue to impose maximum pressure on Iran in order to bring it to the negotiating table, Iran is likely to react sharply and tensions may rise.
