Iran’s President has warned of reprisals if Washington resorts to further sanctions.
- This could jeopardise a hard-won nuclear deal due to be finally implemented within weeks.
- U.S. Treasury Department had planned to blacklist companies and individuals with ties to Iran’s ballistic missile programme.
- Since the nuclear deal was struck, U.S. officials say Iran has conducted two missile tests.
- The tests breached previous resolutions aimed at stopping Iran from developing missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.
