The United States is today due to further tighten sanctions on Iran, as relations between the two countries continue to deteriorate.

Both nations say they want to avoid going to war.

Following Trump calling off the planned strike on Friday, Washington secretly launched cyber-attacks against Iranian missile control systems and a spy network in response to the downed drone.
