US President Donald Trump’s administration is wanting to force a “flood of sanctions” in Iran by January 20, 2021, after it recently focused on the Islamic Republic’s oil and financial sectors, a media report said.
The administration, in a joint effort with Israel and a few Gulf states, is pushing for the new sanctions, educated Israeli sources told the Virginia-based Axios news source on Sunday.
As indicated by the sources, US envoy for Iran Elliott Abrams showed up in Israel on Sunday and met Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat to examine the arrangement.
On Monday, Abrams will meet defense Minister Benny Gantz and Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi to brief them on the proposition, the sources told Axios.
After Israel, the agent is booked to the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia to talk about the authorizations plan.
The improvement comes a few days after Abrams said at a closed briefing that the Trump administration needs to report another arrangement of sanctions on Iran consistently until January 20, when President-elect Joe Biden will be initiated as the new American President, another informed source told Axios.
Then, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is planning to show up in Israel on November 18.
On October 8, the US assigned 18 significant banks to Iran, and a couple of days after that on October 22, new sanctions were forced on five Iranian entities for “attempting to influence” the November 3 American official political race.
On October 27, the US forced new sanctions against the Iranian oil sector, for its “financial support” to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force.
