President Donald Trump has ordered fresh economic sanctions on Iran on Wednesday in the wake of the recent drone attacks on Saudi Arabia oil production.

“I have just instructed the Secretary of the Treasury to substantially increase Sanctions on the country of Iran!” Trump announced on Twitter.

Trump said on Monday it “looked like” Iran was responsible for the attacks.

But the presdient said he would wait until a definitive conclusion was reached to see if Iran was to blame.

Trump sent Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to meet with Saudi officials to discuss an appropriate reposne to the attacks.

In May, Pompeo warned both the UK and the European Union against helping Iran following Washington's efforts to bring Tehran’s oil exports to zero.

Trump said on Monday he was interested in meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the United Nations Summit.

“I never rule anything out, but I prefer not meeting him,” he told reporters.

Last month, Rouhani suggested that if he were to meet President Donald Trump, the United States would have to bow down to Iran, and repent from "economic terrorism."

In a video translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, Rouhani said:

"Those who have imposed sanctions on our people, and have carried out economic terrorism – any change in our conduct toward them must start with their repentance," he said.

"They must return to their obligations and change the erroneous path they have chosen."

"They must act in the service of the world's interests and security while maintaining respect for the other."
