Washington: While Donald Trump was virtually gasping for breath to stay alive as President of the United States for a few more days he imposed new sanctions on two Iranian foundations on Wednesday.
The designations announced by the U.S. Treasury Department target Execution of Imam Khomeini's Order and Astan Quds Razavi which manages the shrine of Imam Ali Raza in Mashhad, their leaders and subsidies. They are the latest action to reinforce the "maximum pressure" campaign on Iran pursued by Trump's administration.
