Treasury Secretary: US Will Ramp Up Pressure on Iran

Mnuchin said that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s team had give him a series of “very specific ideas” that the US will implement. He provided no indication as to what that would entail.

This is both in keeping with US policy of imposing new, albeit rarely meaningful, sanctions on Iran, and giving Israel exactly what they want to hear during an official visit, which is that US hostility toward Iran will continue to grow.

Mnuchin insisted that the existing sanctions are entirely successful, and Netanyahu thanked him, while adding he needs to “do more – more, a lot more,” which is not a change from Israel’s long-standing position.
