French President Emmanuel Macron has stressed France's commitment to the Iran nuclear deal and called the talks between Seoul and Pyongyang a positive step in a telephone conversation with his USA counterpart Donald Trump, the Elysee Palace said in statement late on Thursday.
The White House also said in a press release in the wake of the call, that Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron spoke about their commitment to keep pressuring North Korea in order to stop its nuclear program. "I would expect an announcement either later today or tomorrow morning".
But Trump argues his predecessor Barack Obama gave away too much to Iran in sanctions relief, without forcing the Islamic republic to end its ballistic missile programme and aggressive support for militant groups.
"You're going to be finding out very soon".
"I am expecting new sanctions on Iran, we continue to look at them", Mnuchin told reporters.
Aaron David Miller, a former US State Department adviser who now works with Washington-based think tank The Wilson Centre, said that whilst Trump talked tough on Iran, he was actually "risk averse" and would prefer to take the safer route.
The decision comes as Iran's government deals with protests over economic hardships and corruption that are linked to frustration among younger Iranians who hoped to see more benefits from the lifting of sanctions.
The 's Gary O'Donoghue, in Washington, says that while the future of the major sanctions is an open question, the new measures could help the president fend off criticisms from his supporters that he's not fulfilling a key campaign promise to "rip up" the nuclear deal with Iran.
Trump was asked what is his current thinking on Iran. Iranian people have every right to all its dividends... "One of the things he hates more than anything is the fact that United States law requires him to certify a deal and waive sanctions on a deal that he views as awful, the worst, one-sided, an embarrassment".

A unilateral USA withdrawal from the Iran deal would be another blow to America's diplomatic credibility, which has already been damaged after its multiple "retreats" from the worldwide organizations and commitments past year.
McMonigle estimated that as much as 800,000 b/d of Iranian crude could be removed from the market and spike oil prices if the deal is scrapped. "We do not hide the other points of disagreement that exist", Le Drian said.
In a telephone call with Trump on Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron stressed the importance of abiding by the nuclear deal and, in an apparent effort to win the USA president over, emphasized the need to enforce it rigorously.
"President Macron reaffirmed France's determination to see the agreement strictly enforced and the importance for all of its signatories to abide by it", Macron's office said in a statement to reporters.
