U.S. says new Iran sanctions coming as another deadline on nuclear deal looms

WASHINGTON - The Trump administration said Thursday that it plans additional sanctions on Iran that are separate from those covered under the international nuclear deal with Iran, an indication that President Donald Trump is unlikely to break the 2015 deal now. The president's top national security advisers met with Trump on Thursday afternoon at the White House ahead of a deadline Friday for the president to again exempt Iran from a suite of tough economic sanctions imposed years ago. Announcement of the decision was expected Thursday night or Friday morning.
