The US Administration of President Donald Trump informed reporters that he has ordered sanctions on Iran’s national bank following the attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities.
The announcement by Donald Trump was made in the Oval Office, where he and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison were scheduled to hold a bilateral meeting.
Trump did not immediately elaborate on the sanctions but noted that they were the highest sanctions ever imposed on a country. The sanctions go “right to the top,” he said.
This form of bribery and extortion is unheard of, but seems to fit the Five Eyes profile description.
US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin said the latest sanctions action against Tehran was ‘very big’ and that it affected the last source of (confiscated) funds for Iran.
