U.S. Treasury says Iran sanctions aimed at 'malign activity abroad'

WASHINGTON, Feb 3 (Reuters) - The U.S. Treasury said sanctions announced on Friday against a group of individuals and entities underscored a U.S. commitment to use such measures over Iran’s ballistic missile program and “destabilizing activities in the region.”

It said in a statement that the sanctions were “fully consistent” with U.S. commitments under the Iran nuclear deal reached in 2015, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. (Reporting by Yara Bayoumy and Eric Walsh)
