U.S. Seeks Sanctions on Iran

The Obama administration is considering a wide range of sanctions against Iran as punishment for its nuclear program, according to The New York Times. Options include cutting off investments to Iran’s oil and gas industry, the blacklisting of more Iranian banks, and the targeting of energy equipment and technology. The push for new sanctions comes just four days before a face-to-face meeting between the United States and Iran, in which the U.S. is expected to demand blueprints to the newly discovered nuclear site.
