Washington DC (People’s Daily) -- US President Donald Trump issued an executive order Friday to Impose new sanctions on Iran.
In a statement by the White House, Trumps said he authorized the imposition of sanctions against any individual or entity operating in the construction, manufacturing, textiles, or mining sectors of the Iranian economy or anyone assisting those who engage in this sanctioned conduct.
“This order will have a major impact on the Iranian economy, authorizing powerful secondary sanctions on foreign financial institutions,” said Trump.
The US President said, “the Iranian government has threatened United States military service members, diplomats and civilians, as well as the citizens and interests of our allies and partners, through military force and proxy groups.”
“The United States will continue to counter the Iranian regime’s destructive and destabilizing behavior.”
At the end, Trump repeated that Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.
These punishing economic sanctions will remain until the Iranian government changes its behavior.
On Wednesday, Trump mentioned that he will impose new sanctions against Iran, rather than military retaliation.
