USA: 'I am expecting new sanctions' — Treasury's Mnuchin on Iran nuclear deal

US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said on Thursday that he expected the US administration to impose new sanctions on Iran. «I am expecting new sanctions on Iran. We continue to look at them. We’ve rolled them out and I think you can expect there will be more sanctions coming”, said Mnuchin. Commenting on the Iranian nuclear deal, he said that «many aspects need to be change» pointing out... Еще «activities» that take place outside the agreement such as ballistic missiles and human rights violations. «We have as many sanctions on Iran today as we have on any other country in the process and we will continue to look at things,» he reassured. On Friday, the administration under US President Donald Trump is expected to decide on whether to waive sanctions on Iran as part of the 2015 nuclear deal. Last year, Trump refused to certify Iran’s compliance with the deal reached during former President Barack Obama's administration referring it to Congress for consultation. Under the deal, some international sanctions on Iran were revoked in exchange for Tehran curbing nuclear activity. If Trump extended Iran's relief from sanctions, the move would likely be accompanied by a new set of measures targeting Iranian businesses and people, according to earlier statements by US officials.
