The US is currently working to expand the scope of Iran metals sanctions which relate to the country’s nuclear, military and ballistic missile programs, says Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. In a statement on Thursday, Pompeo called the new move as a “major expansion” of such sanctions which target 22 specific materials that he said included aluminum powder with purity above 98%. The sanctions administered by the State Department would allow Washington to blacklist those who he claimed knowingly transfer the materials to Iran.
