The U.S. has reimposed tough sanctions on #Iran’s regime as part of our relentless pressure campaign to convince the regime to change its destructive behavior. Iran’s regime has a choice: change its behavior and act like a normal country or watch the escalating pressure continue. pic.twitter.com/Yg0e8ovDPs— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) November 5, 2018
.@SecPompeo: Because of the sanctions we are announcing today, #Iran will have zero oil revenue to spend on terrorism, missile proliferation, regional proxies, or a nuclear program. pic.twitter.com/Esuj3NNgur— Department of State (@StateDept) November 5, 2018
Companies risk their reputation engaging with #Iran’s regime, which spreads violence and instability in the region and around the world. Companies that evade our sanctions and continue sanctionable commerce with the Iranian regime will face severe penalties. pic.twitter.com/sGbl5I5UpH— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) November 5, 2018
