Iran slams new US sanctions

The Iranian Foreign Ministry said that Washington's sanctions policy has failed, adding that Americans should understand this, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

This comes in response to the latest US restrictive measures against Tehran.

On Friday the Trump administration imposed new economic sanctions against Iran, targeting its central bank and its sovereign wealth fund: "We've now cut off all sources of funds to Iran," Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said. 

Note that the move came following last weekend's drone attacks on Saudi Aramco's oil facilities that caused major fires and partially disrupted the country's oil production, affecting global oil prices.
