Donald Trump imposes new US sanctions on Iran, including supreme leader

Updated : June 24, 2019 10:03 PM IST

Trump initially told reporters the sanctions, which will target Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and his office, were in response to Tehran's downing of a US drone last week.
Trump said he decided the strike, to punish Iran for shooting down the drone, would have killed too many people.
Trump has said he would be open to talks with Iranian leaders, but Tehran has rejected such an offer unless Washington drops the sanctions.
