A US threat to impose economic sanctions against countries that cooperate with Iran

BAGHDAD, The Special Representative of the President of the United States of America to Iran, Brian Hook, announced his country's readiness to impose secondary (second) sanctions against countries that will continue trade cooperation with Iran after the entry into force of the first wave of sanctions.

"We hope our partners will abide by the sanctions regime," Hawk told a news conference at the State Department. "I think there is no reason to recall the US readiness to impose secondary / second / sanctions."

Washington has imposed sanctions against Iran in several areas, including bank transfers in US currency, metals, aluminum, steel and others, while energy and oil will be in November.

The United States withdrew from the nuclear deal with Iran in May, announcing the resumption of severe economic sanctions against Tehran, while the local Iranian currency witnessed a significant devaluation of its value against foreign currencies.
