WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement on the Trump administration’s announcement of new sanctions on Iran:

“Iran’s latest ballistic missile test was a flagrant violation of UN Security Council resolutions. This swift and decisive response proves that our new administration is serious about holding the Iranian regime accountable for its illicit behavior. I applaud President Trump for imposing new sanctions to crack down on Tehran’s dangerous ballistic missile program and support for terrorism across the globe.”
