US ending sanction waivers for Iran oil imports

US ending sanction waivers for Iran oil imports

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday that the US will not renew sanction waivers for five countries that receive oil from Iran. The five countries include Japan, South Korea, India, and Turkey, as well as China. The US had issued waivers to these nations, but they expire May 2. Accordingly, these nations will no longer be exempt from sanctions if they still import oil from Iran.

Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State is the definition of Washington DC swamp.

what is with the favoritism for the UAE and Saudi Arabia and the disdain for Iran? 100% sure it has to do with the fact that the deal involved Obama and absolutely nothing else. for evidence, one only needs to be look at North Korea and how well he treats them and how similar that situation is to Iran, and how much he fawns over North Korea's leader

Destroying people's economies out in the open and somehow acting like a victim has become America's new pastime.
