US to fully enforce reimposed Iran nuclear sanctions

August 6, 2018 4:06 pm

President Donald Trump says he will fully enforce the sanctions being reimposed on Iran as a result of the US withdrawal from a 2015 nuclear deal.

Measures targeting Iran’s automotive sector as well as its trade in gold and other key metals will take effect from 00:01 EDT (04:01 GMT) on Tuesday.

Mr Trump believes the economic pressure will force Iran to agree to a new deal and end its “malign” activities.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said the act was “psychological warfare”.

Responding on Iranian state television, Mr Rouhani rejected the idea of last-minute talks. “We are always in favour of diplomacy and talks… but talks need honesty,” he said.
