Overnight, US President Donald Trump signed off on a new round of “hard-hitting” sanctions against Iran following its downing last week of a US surveillance drone. The measures were targetted at Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other Iranian officials. US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said they “go after the supreme leader’s office and lock up literally billions more in assets”.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said the “fruitless sanctions” mean “the permanent closure of the road of diplomacy with the frustrated US administration”.
