Mnuchin: We can ramp up the sanctions on Iran

Speaking at a joint press conference Monday with US Secretary Treasury Steven Mnunchin, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned of Iranian aspirations “to develop cruise missiles that can reach any destination in the Middle East, including Israel.”  He hailed the end of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdad by US special forces, but added that the “struggle continues, even against Shiites in Iran. The premier urged the US to impose additional sanctions on Iran. Mnuchin promised to “follow-up on ideas from Netanyahu’s team” and “continue to ramp up more.”
