US Imposes Sanction after Pull Out from Iran Deal
May 11 , 2018
After the US has backed out of the Iran nuclear deal, it has already begun imposing sanctions - though not on the nation yet. Three companies and six people have been levied with sanctions that the US believe have ties with the military force of Iran, the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury Secretary, has clarified that those have been targeted who have funded millions of dollars to facilitate 'malign activities' of the group.
Mnuchin stated that "We are intent on cutting off IRGC revenue streams wherever their source and whatever their destination."
