On September 4, the United States imposed new sanctions on Iran. Deutsche Welle reports this, reffering to the US Treasury Department.

"The measures are directed against a large cargo transportation network that financially supports the Iranian military and terrorist unit, Al-Quds forces from the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps," the US Treasury said.

Washington's restrictive measures apply to nine individuals, 16 companies, and six oil tankers. In addition to the Iranians, citizens of India, the UAE and Lebanon are subject to US sanctions.

In late August, the Department of Foreign Assets Control of the US Department of the Treasury imposed sanctions against Iranian oil megatanker Adrian Darya 1 (formerly Grace 1) and its captain.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani rejected any bilateral negotiations with the United States of America unless Washington lifts all unilateral sanctions against Tehran.
 
 
Hossein Dehghan, Advisor to the Islamic Revolution leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said that U.S. President Donald Trump was not keeping his promises. He cannot be trusted, and Iran will not negotiate with him under any circumstances.

"We respectfully say that we do not consider Trump worthy of negotiations, because we do not consider him a person who makes a promise and fulfills it. He is a businessman who just wants to empty people's pockets and look at everyone from this point of view," General Hossein Dehghan said in an interview for CBS News on August 25.

The military adviser to the leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran added that Trump does not need a settlement of problems with Iran, he only wants to speculate on this topic on the eve of 2020 presidential election.
