Obama sanctions Iranian Central Bank
06-Feb-2012 (one comment)

US President Barack Obama has placed stricter sanctions on Iran's government, including its central bank.

In an executive order, Mr Obama said he was freezing all Iranian government assets held or traded in the US.

On Sunday, Mr Obama said the US and Israel were "in lockstep" in their policy towards Iran.

Concerns have grown in Israel and the West that Iran is developing nuclear weapons, although Tehran says its nuclear programme is entirely peaceful.

Exactly what assets are they freezing? As in, what assets has US allowed IRI government to have in US, or has let them be traded? I thought trading between Iran and US companies was alreaady sanctioned long time ago.
