Starting Tuesday, the Trump administration is reimposing sanctions on Iran; and in November it will impose even more.
The sanctions will target a range of sectors, blocking Iran from purchasing US bank notes and trading in gold and metals like aluminium and steel.
It will also limit Iran’s access to the software and automotive sectors while blocking its ability to purchase commercial aircraft or trade in food and other goods.
The US denies it is pushing for regime change in Iran.
