The US is preparing new sanctions against Iran, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said.
“Preparation (for the imposition of sanctions) is in full swing,” Pompeo said, speaking at a hearing at the Senate International Committee.
He expressed hope that the sanctions will be supported by the UN and other countries.
US President Donald Trump earlier announced withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan with Iran on Tehran’s nuclear program. Trump also said that the sanctions suspended under the SVPD will be reintroduced.
