In an effort to stop Iran from using backdoor financial methods as a means to skirt U.S. economic sanctions in its business dealings with leading European nations, the Trump administration is considering new sanctions.

These sanctions would directly target the alternate financial body set up by Tehran to ensure it can continue engaging in lucrative trade deals with Europe in the face of heavy U.S. sanctions. Iran's Special Trade and Finance Institute (STFI) was meant to replace the Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges (ISTEX), which France, Germany, and the United Kingdom created in January to facilitate trade with Iran.

The goal of the Mecca summits, which involve members of the Organisation for Islamic Cooperation, the Arab League and the Gulf Cooperation Council, was to increase unity and understanding between Arab and Islamic states.

This year, the Mecca summit’s final statement emphasised that Iran must cease its hostile and destabilising actions in the region, which has caused great suffering to the Arab and Islamic world. However, despite the people of Iraq has arguably suffered the most due to Iranian sectarianism, their leaders, along with Qatar, opposed the statement due to short-term interests and the fact that Iran holds the balance of power in both countries.

A crucial step toward preventing the Iranian regime any more the Iranian people's meager resources, new sanctions were issued on the biggest petrochemical holding of the Iranian regime for its financial support of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).

However, more needs to be done, according to Mohammad Mohaddessin, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) In an interview with Ilaf news website. He declared that the next step should be to sanction the Iranian regime's natural gas exports. "Further sanctions on gas exports will cut off the regime from Iran's natural resources and ensure that these assets will be used to rebuild the country after the mullahs are overthrown," Mohaddessin told Ilaf reporters.
