US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Wednesday that Washington would take deterrent action against Hezbollah militia.
He stated that the US will discuss with allies taking aggressive action against Hezbollah in a speech at the Future Investment Initiative Conference in Riyadh
Republican leaders in the US House of Representatives, revealed on October 21 that the Council will vote in a few days to impose new sanctions on the Iranian ballistic missile program and the Tehran-backed Hezbollah.
The move comes within the anti-terror policies embraced by US President Donald Trump since he took office, especially in light of his continuing criticism of Iran's nuclear deal.
Trump challenged both allies and rivals on Oct. 13 by refusing to certify Tehran's commitment to the international nuclear deal, and threatened that it might eventually annul the agreement.
It was announced on October 16 that there was a "realistic possibility" of canceling the nuclear deal with Iran.
