The penalties are due to accusations of human rights abuses and government censorship.
It is also said to be due, in part, to tensions over the president’s decision to exit the Obama-era nuclear deal.
In a recent statement, Steven Mnuchin said Iran exports terrorism and instability across the world, and violates the rights of its own people.
The terror organization Hezbollah was one of the groups targeted by sanctions.
