The U.S. is preparing a fresh round of sanctions against Iran and will press other nations to comply with existing restrictions as talks on limiting the country’s nuclear program languish, the Biden administration warned Thursday.

President Joe Biden “has asked his team to be prepared in the event diplomacy fails,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters. If talks in Vienna to revive a 2015 agreement curbing Iran’s program fail, “we will have no choice but to take additional measures” to restrict Iran’s revenue, she said.
