Trump Administration Imposes New Sanctions On Iran's Industrial Metals

According to Reuters, President Donald Trump on Wednesday imposed new U.S. sanctions targeting Iran’s revenue from export of industrial metals and threatened further action unless Tehran “fundamentally” changed its behavior.

In a statement the White House said that an executive order issued by Trump covers Iran’s iron, steel, aluminum, and copper sector.

This would cover the Islamic Republic’s largest non-petroleum-related sources of export revenue and 10 percent of its export economy.
