US President Donald Trump today has issued a strong warning to anyone trading with Iran, following his re-imposition of sanctions on the country.
According to Mr Trump in tweet, anyone doing business with Iran will not be doing business with the United States as some re-imposed sanctions took effect overnight and tougher ones relating to oil exports will begin in November.
Meanwhile Iran’s president said the measures are psychological warfare which aims to sow division among Iranians.
The sanctions follow the US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as the Iran nuclear deal, earlier this year.
The deal, negotiated during the presidency of Barack Obama, saw Iran limit its controversial nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.
