US sanctions imposed on Iranian firms


The US has wasted no time in reacting to Iran’s announcement that it has started enriching its own uranium.

Washington has imposed sanctions on four subsidiaries of a construction firm run by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards.

An individual commander is also named in the action.

Sanctions had already been in place against Khatam al-Anbiya Construction, but now four of its spin-off companies are included.

The sanctions mean there is a ban on transactions between the firms and US companies.

Washington says profits from Revolutionary Guard commercial activities help support nuclear programmes.
