U.S. sees sanctions having significant impact on Iran economy: U.S. officials

President Donald J. Trump signs an Executive Order in Bedminster, N.J., entitled "Reimposing Certain Sanctions with Respect to Iran."

The Trump administration will aggressively enforce economic sanctions that is it re-imposing on Iran this week and expects the measures to have a significant impact on the Iranian economy, senior U.S. administration officials said on Monday.

The so-called snapback sanctions would target Iran’s purchases of U.S. dollars, metals trading and other dealings, coal, industrial-related software and its auto sector.

The officials added that Trump was ready to meet with Iran’s leaders at any time in an effort to forge a new agreement with Tehran after President Donald Trump withdrew from a 2015 nuclear deal in May.
