U.S. sanctions are having a strong effect on Iran's economy and popular opinion, though regime change there is not part of Washington's policy, President Donald Trump's national security adviser said on Wednesday.The Trump administration re-imposed sanctions this month after withdrawing from the 2015 international nuclear deal with Iran, which Washington saw as inadequate for curbing Tehran's activities in neighboring Middle East countries and denying it the means to make an atomic bomb.Washington imposed new sanctions on Iran in August, targeting its trade in gold and other precious metals, purchases of U.S. dollars and its car industry. Trump has said the United States will issue another round of tougher sanctions in November that will target Iran's oil sales and banking sector.The pact between Iran and world powers lifted international sanctions that had been throttling the Iranian economy.
