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

The US under President Donald Trump has been trying to corner Iran at the global level. The list of these exemptions would be announced on Monday, Pompeo told reporters during a conference call on Iranian sanctions, with US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

In May, Russian oil major, Lukoil said it had decided not to go ahead with plans to develop projects in Iran at the moment due to the threat of USA sanctions.

"Thank you, President Trump for this historic step".

A day ahead of the anti-Iranian sanctions coming back into force, thousands took to the streets of Tehran to condemn the U.S. and Donald Trump. "The goal is to target and tie up these revenues to change Iran's calculus", said Behnam Ben Taleblu of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

The agreement saw Iran limit its controversial nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

"On Monday, November 5, the termination of US participation in the Iran nuclear deal will be complete". The European Union, France, Germany and Britain also slammed the upcoming USA measures.

The big cat was blamed for 13 deaths since June 2016 but animal activists said she was trying to protect her young. The authorities made a decision to hunt the tigress to ensure the coexistence of tigers and humans.


But other countries, including those of the European Union, believe Iran is holding to its part of the bargain on the nuclear deal and have made clear their intention not to follow America's lead. Iran has accused Mr Trump of waging "psychological warfare".

On Friday afternoon Trump tweeted an image of himself with the words "SANCTIONS ARE COMING" sprawled across him in the same font as the HBO show uses.

Although precise figures are rarely available in the notoriously opaque oil market, most analysts say Iran's exports dropped from around 2.5 million barrels per day in April to roughly 1.6 million in October.

It is the second time that the White House has reversed sanctions since May after Mr Trump withdrew from the nuclear accord, describing it as "defective to the core".

As a result of the latest sanctions, he said the United States expects to have reduced Iranian crude oil exports by more than 1 million barrels even before these sanctions go into effect.

The sanctions will remain in place until Iran meets demands that include an end to support for terrorism and to military engagement in Syria.

If the USA does in the end follow through on its strongest threats, choking off Iranian supplies entirely, that spare capacity could be completely exhausted, leaving nearly nothing left to cover unexpected disruptions in other trouble spots. He did not say whether individual European countries such as Greece, Italy and Spain might be granted waivers. South Korea, Japan and India are expected to get a reprieve, however, and possibly China.

Khamenei said the USA has failed to dominate Iran in the way it did before the 1979 Islamic Revolution that ousted a pro-Western monarchy.

China - the leading importer of Iranian oil - is still in discussions with the USA on terms but is among the eight, according to two people familiar with the discussions.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said earlier Friday the United States will grant eight jurisdictions waivers to the USA -led campaign against Iran, but did not name them.
