Washington: US sanctions to be re-imposed on Iran today do not include oil sales


The administration of US President Donald Trump on Monday is to reinstate the first round of sanctions against Iran since the United States withdrew from the nuclear deal, but the most important slice of sanctions, including oil sales, will not come into force until November.

On Monday, Trump said Trump was quite serious about keeping the United States out of what he called the “worst negotiated deal” and also moving a message to US partners and allies in Europe that there was no return to the re-imposition of sanctions.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the United States would fully implement sanctions against Iran, which are due to come into force on Monday.

“The United States will implement these sanctions,” Pompeo told reporters who returned with him from Southeast Asia on Sunday.

“It is an important part of our efforts to respond to malicious activity.”

The sanctions come in the wake of US President Donald Trump’s withdrawal last May from an internationally-backed deal with Iran over its nuclear program. Iran has since faced ongoing internal protests as its economy deteriorated before the start of financial sanctions.

Pompeo concluded his visit to Southeast Asia over the weekend for a summit with Singapore’s foreign ministers, saying a major change was needed in Iran.

“They have to act as a natural state,” he told reporters on Sunday, adding that “there is no evidence of a change in their behavior.”

Trump announced in May that the United States would withdraw from the 2015 agreement with Iran, Germany, France, Britain, Russia and China. The deal, negotiated by the administration of former President Barack Obama, was sanctions against Iran in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear program.

Instead of re-imposing sanctions in May, the Trump administration gave companies dealing with Iran a period of time to let it back down.

Trump officials have since left the door open for sanctions exemptions but have worked to persuade companies to sever ties with Iran, warning they will not hesitate to impose sanctions, even on other countries.
