US vows 'strongest sanctions in history' on Iran

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said the US is imposing the "strongest sanctions in history" on Iran.

 

In a speech in Washington, America's top diplomat said Iran will be "battling to keep its economy alive" after the sanctions take effect.

 

He said he would work closely with the Pentagon and regional allies "to deter any Iranian aggression".

 

US President Donald Trump this month withdrew the US from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, heralding new sanctions.
