U.S. Hits Iran With New Sanctions For Testing Ballistic Missile


NBC News reports that The Trump administration hit Iran with new sanctions on Friday for test-firing a medium-range ballistic missile, an action that was viewed by the White House as being in defiance of a U.N. resolution. The sanctions target 13 people and a dozen entities, including 'several networks and supporters of Iran's ballistic missile procurement,' the U.S. Treasury Department said in a statement. The move came two days after National Security Adviser Michael Flynn said the White House was putting Iran 'on notice.'

  • U.S. Says Progress With China On N.Korea U.N. Sanctions, True Test Is Russia

    U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said on Tuesday that the United States is making progress in talks with North Korean ally China on imposing new United Nations sanctions on Pyongyang over its latest missile test, but Russia's engagement will be the "true test." The United States gave China a draft resolution nearly three weeks ago to impose stronger sanctions on North Korea over the July 4 missile launch. Traditionally, the United States and China have negotiated sanctions on North Korea before formally involving other council members, though diplomats said Washington informally keeps Britain and France in the loop. Along with Russia, those five countries are veto-wielding Security Council members. The United States and Russia have waged rival campaigns at the Security Council over the type of ballistic missile fired by North Korea. Western powers have said it was an intercontinental ballistic missile, while Russia said the missile fired was only medium-range. Diplomats say China and Russia only view a long-range missile test or nuclear weapon test as a trigger for further possible U.N. sanctions.
