USA can never stop Iran's oil exports: Rouhani

USA can never stop Iran's oil exports: Rouhani

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the July 2015 accord that capped Iran's most sensitive nuclear work in return for the lifting of many sanctions, was plunged into crisis by Trump's May 8 decision to exit even as global inspectors continued to verify Rouhani's government was living up to its side of the bargain.

Zolnour is a hardline member of Iranian parliament, who is helping lead an investigation on whether dual citizens have "infiltrated" Iran's government, according to Radio Farda, the USA -funded Iranian language news service.

Zolnour, who was a deputy representative of the Supreme Leader to the Revolutionary Guard during the Iran deal negotiations, said he didn't know who the officials were and whether if they were only from the current Iranian administration of President Hassan Rouhani.

Mojtaba Zolnour, a hardline member of Iran's parliament and a strong critic of Iran's president, cited the figure in an interview with Iran's reformist newspaper Etemad after being asked whether the Iranian society can look domestically to fix its issues.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said he will respect the nuclear deal with world powers as long as the country's interests are preserved. Iran has arrested a handful of dual U.S.

Switzerland - where significant parts of the pact known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action were negotiated - will work to ensure that future United States sanctions do not target any humanitarian goods, Bern said in a statement.

Heading a high-ranking politico-economic delegation, Rouhani first headed to Bern on the first leg of his tour at the invitation of his Swiss counterpart, Alain Berset.

In 2010, Germany joined the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council-Russia, China, Britain, France and the US -to impose tough new sanctions on Iran's banking and financial sectors and to block its ability to get paid for oil sales.

Hook said that the first part of U.S. sanctions against Iran will snap back on August 6.

The answer is speaking for itself today in this World Cup . "This is a shock for German football". Team Argentina was too dependent on Lionel Messi, who has not shown his best game yet.

But the claims are likely to stir up further resentment among Republicans who have previously criticized the Obama administration over the Iran Deal, which was reached in July 2015, claiming he conceded too much to the Middle Eastern nation.

The Department of Homeland Security declined to comment on the report, and a State Department spokesperson said: "We're not going to comment on every statement by an Iranian official".

It remains unclear whether the Obama administration carved out special exemptions for the families of Iranian regime officials to live in the United States.

Meanwhile, a major focus of Trump's campaign is to drive Tehran's economy-sustaining oil exports to zero.

Iran threatened retaliation against regional oil producers in the event that its revenue from export sales collapses as a result of United States sanctions pressure.

Iran is India's third-largest oil supplier behind Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

"Just spoke to King Salman of Saudi Arabia and explained to him that, because of the turmoil & disfunction in Iran and Venezuela, I am asking that Saudi Arabia increase oil production, maybe up to 2,000,000 barrels, to make up the difference", Trump tweeted. "We are prepared to work with countries that are reducing their imports on a case-by-case basis", said Brian Hook, the director of policy planning at the State Department.

Hook sad more than 50 firms announced their intent to leave the Iranian market, particularly in energy and finance sectors, as the U.S.is moving toward placing sanctions on Iran.

But so far it has proven hard to offset the impact of continued USA sanctions, with European firms reluctant to risk far-reaching US financial penalties to do business in Iran.
