Iran Sanctions To Be Applied To China If $400 Billion Trade Deal Signed

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo testifies during a Senate Foreign Relations committee hearing on the State Department's 2021 budget on Capitol Hill Thursday, July 30, 2020, in Washington.

Referring to a $400 billion 25-year trade deal between Iran and China U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on August 2 said the United States will apply all Iran sanctions also to the “Chinese Communist Party and their businesses and state-owned enterprises”.

The comments on the Iran-China deal were made during an interview with the Sunday Morning Futures program of Fox News.

In response to a question on the agreement which the presenter said “is set to be in the final stages of approving”, Pompeo said it “shouldn’t be surprising that regimes that don’t respect freedom at home and foment national security problems abroad would want to join hands” and added that the United States will be sure to enforce all the provisions it has and apply all Iran sanctions, “to the Chinese Communist Party and their businesses and state-owned enterprises as well”.
