US to apply ‘strongest sanctions in history’ on Iran – Pompeo

Iran will struggle to “keep its economy alive” after the US applies “unprecedented financial pressure” on Tehran, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo vowed on Monday.
“Thanks to our colleagues at the Department of Treasury, sanctions are going back in full effect and new ones are coming … These will indeed end up being the strongest sanctions in history,” Pompeo said.

He warned that “the sting of sanctions will be painful” and Iran will struggle to “keep its economy alive” if Tehran “does not change its course from the unacceptable and unproductive path it has chosen.”
