US president Signs Executive Orders, Imposing Fresh, Tough Sanctions on Iran

Washington, US President Donald Trump signed here today a host of executive orders imposing new and tough sanctions on Iran.

President Trump told reporters, at the White House, that "the new sanctions come in response to the downing of a US drone," he said, however, he ruled out US pursuit of a conflict with Iran, declaring preference for reaching an agreement.

"We have exercised restraint towards Iran, but that does not mean that we will remain so in the future," he added, stressing that Iran is not allowed to possess nuclear weapons and that Iran's path is devastating.
