IRGC Commander Threatens 'Dominance' Over The U.S. In Mideast

Khamenei Trump

The move by the White House re-imposes USA sanctions that were lifted as part of a 2015 multinational deal with Tehran and impose hundreds of additional sanctions created to hit Iran's key economic sectors - including oil and gas, shipping and banking.

The United States reimposed oil and financial sanctions against Iran on Monday, significantly turning up the pressure on Tehran in order to curb its missile and nuclear programs and counter its growing military and political influence in the Middle East.

Mr Pomeop also identified eight countries that were granted exemptions to temporarily continue buying Iranian oil - China, India, Greece, Italy, Taiwan, Japan, Turkey and South Korea.

On late Friday, Turkey's Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Donmez said they have information that the usa will grant Turkey a waiver to continue importing oil from Iran after sanctions, but they don't have all the details yet.

In a press conference with Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, Mnuchin said the sanctions are Treasury's "largest single-day action ever targeting Iran".

China denounced new U.S. sanctions targeting Iran's oil and financial sectors as "long-arm jurisdiction" on Monday and vowed to continue its bilateral trade with the Islamic republic.

US President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal in May and gave nations and businesses 180 days to wind down their oil purchases to "zero".

He said privatizing state assets, for example, could free a significant portion of capital to be exploited by the public for new development plans.

Iran's economy was already suffering from major structural problems - including major banking issues - before Mr Trump walked out of the nuclear deal.

Iranian leaders and particularly IRGC officials often make threatening remarks about the US and its allies in the region.

In addition to the company itself, more than 65 of its individual aircraft have been sanctioned for being owned by the Iranian government.

China says it is conducting normal cooperation with Iran within framework of worldwide law.

"Iran is a much different country than it was when I took office", said Trump, adding: "They wanted to take over the whole Middle East".

'Our position remains that as long as Iran continues to meet the deal that exists, we will be committed to it too'.

"All eyes will be on the outcome of negotiations on possible waivers to USA sanctions on Iran".

It is now unclear whether or not China is on the waiver list, but the country's foreign ministry said Monday that the sanctions were regrettable, and China's trade cooperation with Iran should be respected.

Another signatory to the nuclear deal, China, has said it regrets the re-imposition of sanctions and that its lawful trade with Iran should be respected.

Well, Chris, the sanctions that will be reimposed tomorrow are the toughest sanctions ever put in place on the Islamic Republic of Iran.

However, the Europeans need to figure out a way to maintain that trade with Iran without enraging the U.S. As reported Monday by the Financial Times, the EU has been preparing a "special objective vehicle" to safeguard that trade, but it's not yet ready.

Pompeo did say that temporary waivers would be granted to three unnamed non-proliferation organizations, who he said were working to oversee Iran's civil nuclear program.
