Iran to allow private sector to export oil, beat US sanctions

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani is seen at the airport in Tehran

The remarks came a few hours after a State Department briefing in Washington that set out plans to impose sanctions on buyers of Iranian oil from November.

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. The Iranians are the best supervisor.

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.

Rouhani, who's facing intense pressure from hardline conservatives at home who accuse him of being naïve for ever trusting the USA, would be left with little incentive to remain in the deal and in compliance with its terms and conditions.

Coming from the president of the United States, this could lead to real consequences for Iranians living in the United States or those perceived to be Iranian.

The top diplomats of Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation will join Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in the Austrian capital, Iran's official IRNA news agency reported, for their first talks together on the deal since Washington pulled out earlier this year. The U.S. accuses Iran of violating the accord's spirit through destabilizing activities the Middle East.

He didn't clarify if he was complaining about 2,500 Iranians over the course of more than two years, which is how long it took to negotiate the nuclear agreement.

Iran had been pushing hard for oil producers to hold output steady as USA sanctions are expected to hit its exports.

"Iranians don't understand why the US government allows the offspring of the regime officials to live in the USA, while the USA has introduced a travel ban for ordinary Iranian citizens, and many Americans are imprisoned in Iran", Ghasseminejad added.

On June 25, shop owners in the Grand Bazaar of Tehran closed their stores in a rare strike to protest against the depreciation of the Iranian currency.

Already French companies Total and Peugeot, for example, have said they will pull out of Iran rather than risk being shut out of the United States. financial system, as Washington threatens to use the dollar's reserve currency status to punish anyone who gets in the way of its ramped-up Iran policy. Zolnour is a hard-liner, and was using the claim as a cudgel against his more moderate foes in Tehran. But it is based on the unsubstantiated comments of one conservative Iranian cleric, trying to bash the more moderate President Hassan Rouhani and his administration.

Referring to claims that Iran is spending its income on sponsoring those whom the Americans call terrorists, President Rouhani said "we will continue to be transparent".

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.

Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) revealed more deception by Obama and his State Department, which allegedly carried out covert deals to work out the Iran nuclear deal and score points with the radical left, who have traditionally pushed for a politically correct foreign policy of appeasement to keep the peace with America's militant Islamic enemies. The Iran deal negotiations started in 2013, and the pact was signed in 2015. "I think they did so because they were desperate to get a deal".
