Trump Slaps New Sanctions on Iran

Al Udeid Air Base

Pompeo in a statement called it a "major expansion" of the Iran metals-related sanctions administered by the State Department, allowing Washington to blacklist those who knowingly transfer the materials to Iran.

The United States has expanded the scope of its metals sanctions on Iran with the addition of 22 specific materials "connected to its nuclear, military or ballistic missile programmes".

It said the message of the drills to neighboring and friendly countries was peace and friendship as well as security for the region while the global arrogance received the message of the Iranian nation and Armed Forces' preparedness, vigilance and steadfastness in the face of enemies' plots and threats.

Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) stated the other day it introduced ballistic missiles from "the depths of the Earth" for the first time, global news companies reported regional media stating. Aluminum powder is a key ingredient in solid-fuel propellants used to launch missiles. The Trump administration has targeted alleged IRGC funding streams throughout Iran's private sector as part of the Trump administration's so-called maximum pressure campaign against Tehran, launched after the United States pulled out of the 2015 nuclear agreement in 2018.


Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday gave his clearest indication yet that the United States would seek to force UN sanctions on Iran if an arms embargo lapses.

The United States has reimposed sanctions that have sharply lowered Tehran's oil exports. After Trump's exit from the deal, Tehran announced that it would step away from its nuclear commitments, noting, however, that the country's nuclear program remains exclusively peaceful. The United States has formally asked the council to extend the embargo, which is set to be progressively eased beginning in October under UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which enshrined the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.

Washington's European allies, while showing their willingness to extend the arms embargo, have expressed their reservations about such a tactic.

"We hope that it will be approved by the other permanent members" of the Council, he said, while considering it probable that China, even Russian Federation, will use their right of veto to s' oppose it.
