- US President Trump said he has ordered sanctions on Iran’s national bank at “the highest level.”
“These are the highest sanctions ever imposed on a country. We’ve never done it to this level.”
Trump made the remarks in the Oval Office where he held a bilateral meeting with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the bank was Tehran's last source of funds.
“This is very big,” Mnuchin said. “We’ve now cut off all source of funds to Iran.”
US officials have accused Iran of coordinating strikes of Saudi Arabia’s oil installations.
