In his address to the nation, the American president threatened Iran with powerful sanctions, which, according to Trump, have already been introduced.
U.S. President Donald Trump said that sanctions against Iran have already increased after a missile strike on U.S. bases in Iraq, reports Reuters.
вЂњThis has already been done. We have strengthened them. They were very tough, but now they've been significantly strengthened. I just agreed with the Treasury Department,вЂќ he said.
At the same time, Trump did not tell the details of the new sanctions, noting that the relevant statement will soon be made at the Ministry of Finance.
Recall that on the night of January 8, ground-to-ground missiles were fired from Iran at two bases in Iraq, where the U.S. military contingent is located. According to Trump, the Americans and Iraqis were not injured during the strikes.
Later in his address to the nation, U.S. President Donald Trump said he was ready for peace with Iran, but threatened with powerful sanctions.
