Iran seeks to annihilate Israel. I think other nations should follow suit. They say the settlements, home to 600,000 Israelis, are making it increasingly impossible to partition the land into two states - a position that has wide global backing.
The newly announced sanctions target people and businesses the US government says support Iran's ballistic missile program and its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, according to a Treasury Department statement.
The Monday meeting was the first between the leaders since May succeeded David Cameron as prime minister previous year following the British vote to exit the European Union.
"What happens now is that (the nuclear deal) needs to be properly enforced, and we also need to be alert to Iran's pattern of destabilising activity in the region".
Following the meeting, May's official spokeswoman said that the PM had "made clear that we support the deal on nuclear that was agreed".
The deal, under which sanctions were lifted in return for Tehran giving up its military nuclear ambitions, had "neutralised the possibility of the Iranians acquiring nuclear weapons for more than a decade", said the PM's spokeswoman.

The three royals were in high spirits before they hit the track, with Prince William quipping "Oh my hamstring" in the lead up. Kensington Palace recently released a statement regarding Kate's Royal duties.
In her opening remarks, May reiterated the UK's support for a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians "as the best way of brokering stability and peace".
Last month Britain said it had reservations about a French-organised Middle East peace conference in Paris and did not back the final communique by 70 countries which reaffirmed that only a two-state solution could resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Britain has long opposed the policy of settlement building on occupied Palestinian land, believing it to be a barrier to peace.
Small groups of pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli protesters gathered outside Downing Street and Jeremy Corbyn, leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party, said May's stance on settlements was not good enough.
"In that context we want to work with Israel as a friend, recognise their right to be free from terrorism, but also be clear when we have concerns about that approach and how it can undermine trust". "I will discuss with them how to deepen the bilateral diplomatic, security, economic and technical ties including cooperation in the field of cyber", Netanyahu stated. The Israeli prime minister will travel to Washington next week for his first visit since Mr Trump took office.
