WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Tuesday warned international companies considering working with Iran, saying it was dealing with militant terrorist groups, as Washington agreed to impose new sanctions on Tehran by the European Union.
US Treasury Secretary Segal Mandler described any new sanctions as an attempt to counter Iran's demonic activities in the region.
Iran has been accused of failing to comply with the terms of the nuclear deal, saying: "They do not act according to the measures they had promised."
Mandelker, a senior US government official, also warned companies wishing to trade with Iran that the money they send to Iran could reach militias in the region, leading to instability and insecurity in the region.
She pointed out that this explicit warning could harm Iran on trade in the global market, because one of the problems facing foreign companies now in dealing with Iran is the fear of US sanctions to violate the current sanctions.
The warning comes a day after a spiritual threat that the violators of the nuclear deal - whoever they are - will pay a heavy price for breaking this agreement.
Rohani pointed to the nuclear agreement and the attempt of the Trump government over the past 15 months to violate this agreement. "Some are provoking ourselves to violate this nuclear agreement," Rouhani said. "If you break the treaty, you will pay the price yourself and you will not be able to commit any violation with the Iranian nation."
