Donald Trump Goes All ‘Game Of Thrones’ With Iranian Sanctions Reimposition

Donald Trump Game Of Thrones

Three Iraqi officials said on Friday that the U.S. has informed Baghdad it will be allowed to keep importing crucial gas, energy supplies and food items from Iran after Washington reimposes sanctions on Tehran's oil sector, according to Reuters. The waivers could allow top buyers to keep importing Iranian oil after economic penalties come back into effect on Monday.

The rally in the capital of Tehran comes as the United States restored all sanctions that had been lifted on Iran during the era of the Iran nuclear deal.

On Monday, Treasury will add more than 700 names to the list of blocked entities, he said, which includes "hundreds of targets previously granted sanctions relief under the JCPOA, as well as more than 300 new designations".

When Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal struck between world powers and Iran, he began reimposing sanctions that had been suspended or removed by his predecessor Barack Obama.

He said the Iranian economy is already reeling from the earlier sanctions, with the currency losing half its value since April and the prices of fruit, poultry, eggs and milk skyrocketing.

The Trump administration announced Friday it will reinstate sanctions on Iranian institutions and companies as the next step of its exit from the multilateral nuclear deal.

With the sanctions clampdown, Trump is seeking to push Iran to end uranium enrichment outright, and halt its ballistic missile development and support for proxy forces in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon and elsewhere in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, Iranian state television reported that the Islamic Republic had started production of the locally-designed Kowsar fighter plane for use in its air force.




Negotiations are still ongoing, he said explaining the reasons for not revealing the names of the countries that are expected to get exemptions from the United States from this latest and so far the toughest American sanctions on Iran. For now no other countries, including China, would be part of it although that could change over time.

"We have advised SWIFT that Treasury will aggressively use its authorities as necessary to continue intense economic pressure on the Iranian regime and that SWIFT would be subject to USA sanctions if it provides financial messaging services to certain designated Iranian financial institutions", Mnuchin said.

In a speech on Saturday, Khamenei said Trump's policies faced opposition around the world.

U.S. secretary of state Mike Pompeo today imposed penalties against more than 700 businesses, individuals and other entities involved in Iran's oil, banking, shipping, shipbuilding and insurance sectors.

The UK, France, Germany, Russia and China were also parties to the 2015 accord and have stuck to it, saying they will set up a new payment system to maintain business with Iran and bypass United States sanctions.

As part of efforts by Iran and its customers to keep oil flowing, every single one of Iran's vessels "went dark" in late October, switching off their transponders to avoid global tracking systems, according to TankerTrackers.com - a first since the Stockholm-based watchdog began operating in 2016.

Iran said it was not troubled over the re-imposition of USA sanctions.

But for now, Iran seemed likely to try to endure the Trump administration's maximum pressure campaign, she said. The Trump administration has demanded at least two cut imports to zero "within weeks" and that the others reduce at a faster rate than before.
