The policy was announced after Trump pulled out from the Iran nuclear deal - the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) - which had been signed by Obama in 2015.

Iran's foreign ministry and the central bank have taken measures to facilitate banking operations despite the U.S. sanctions, Jahangiri said without elaborating.
