Washington: US President Donald Trump on Monday signed an executive order imposing sanctions on Iran. He said that with these restrictions, Iran’s top leaders and other officials will not be able to take advantage of any banking facilities in the US region.
Iran had said that on Thursday, a US drone has been crashed in the area, some days after Trump has taken steps to impose a new ban. President Trump had withdrawn the order of counter-attack on Friday. In a brief conversation with reporters in his Oval office, Trump said that we do not want to struggle with Iran or any country.
He said that “we will never allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons at any time. Trump said that the executive order he has signed will impose strict sanctions on Iran and prevent Iran’s top leaders and other officials from availing the banking facility. He signed the order in the presence of Finance Minister Steven Manchin.
Trump said that I think we have shown great restraint, but that does not mean that we will also be showcasing in the future. They said that we will continue to increase pressure on Tehran. When asked if these restrictions have been imposed in response to the American attack on the American drone, the President said that you could possibly include it but it was going to happen.
Significantly, US President Donald Trump said Sunday that there is no precondition for negotiations with Iran, except that it will not allow him to acquire nuclear weapons. After coming to power, Trump had removed the US from Iran’s nuclear deal and banned Tehran, which prohibits countries like India buying oil from Iran.
