Donald Trump has announced new sanctions against Iran after Tehran threatened to enrich its stockpile of uranium.

The US president has issued an executive order imposing new restrictions on Iranian steel, aluminium, copper and iron.

Those sectors provide Iran’s troubled economy with foreign currency earnings.

Mr Trump said Tehran could expect “further actions unless it fundamentally alters its conduct”.

He said in a statement: “Today’s action targets Iran’s revenue from the export of industrial metals – 10% of its export economy – and puts other nations on notice that allowing Iranian steel and other metals into your ports will no longer be tolerated.”

Iran threatened to enrich its stockpile of uranium closer to weapons-grade levels in 60 days if world powers failed to negotiate new terms on the 2015 nuclear deal.
