US Treasurer expects more sanctions against Iran

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin of the United States told reporters at the White House on Thursday "I am expecting more sanctions on Iran." Regarding this week's deadline for President Donald Trump to decide whether to continue the suspension of sanctions the Obama administration lifted in exchange for the nuclear deal that Trump has long criticized, Mnuchin said, "I am not going to make any specific comments on that. It is still under discussion."

Echoing the president, the treasury secretary said, "Many aspects of the Iran deal need to be changed. There are many activities outside of the Iran deal...that we will continue to sanction."
