According to Mnuchin the sanctions will impact individuals who own, operate, trade with or assist sectors of the Iranian economy including construction, manufacturing, textiles and mining, NAN reports.
The measures include: 17 sanctions against Iran’s largest steel and iron manufacturers and eight senior Iranian officials.
Pompeo said the sanctions, initially announced by U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday, would deprive the regime of billions in revenue.
Trump’s announcement came after Tehran fired missiles at the U.S. forces in Iraq in retaliation for Washington’s targeted killing of top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
