The United States on Friday sanctioned more Iranian and other foreign companies, banks, airlines and individuals for violating sanctions, working to expand the regime's nuclear program, and supporting terrorism.

U.S. officials said it was sending a signal that there should be no evasion of the sanctions while international talks continue.

The Treasury Department said it was targeting individuals and companies for violations including helping Iran's missile and nuclear programs, evading prior sanctions or supporting terrorism.

"Treasury's action against over 25 entities and individuals, who are involved in expanding Iran's proliferation program, supporting terrorism in the region and helping Iran evade U.S. and international sanctions, reflects our continuing determination to take action against anyone, anywhere, who violates our sanctions," Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David Cohen said in a statement.

In a parallel move, the U.S. State Department imposed sanctions on four firms it said were helping Iran's nuclear program, as well as Goldentex FZE, a UAE-based firm working with Iran's shipping sector, and an Italian firm, Dettin SpA, which it said was working with Iran's petrochemical industry.

The Wall Street Journal reported: "Senior U.S. officials said Friday's measures are mainly designed to prevent Iran and its partners from evading sanctions that are still on the books and as a deterrent against support for terrorists and the Assad regime. The latest steps are allowed under the so-called joint plan of action with Iran, a product of the nuclear talks, officials said."
