Steven Mnuchin: U.S. Will ‘Ramp up More’ Sanctions on Iran

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced Monday new sanctions to continue punishing Iran for its nuclear program.

Speaking in Jerusalem next to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Mnuchin said U.S. sanctions have put maximum pressure on Iran’s economy, basically cutting off their oil revenue.

“We will continue to ramp up more, more, more … I just came from a very productive working lunch with your team,” Mnuchin told Netanyahu. “They gave us a bunch of very specific ideas that we will be following up.”

Netanyahu praised the United States for killing Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi but also warned that “the struggle continues, even against Shiites in Iran.”
