"I sat down with the Chinese officials. They flew in a delegation to meet with us and the State Department to talk about this. They've cut off all of the state companies from buying oil, and we're working closely with them to make sure that they cease all additional oil activities," the U.S. Treasury Secretary said.
Mnuchin noted that the United States had previously imposed sanctions on a number of Chinese firms transporting Iranian oil. ■
