The US special representative for Iran says Washington is not looking to grant any further waivers to countries importing Iranian oil. Brian Hook says three of the eight countries that had been granted exemptions have already cut their imports to zero.
Hook did not specify the countries in question. He stressed that oil market conditions are now prepared for the U-S to ramp up pressure on Iran’s oil sector. The threats come as the International Atomic Energy Agency once again reaffirms Iran’s compliance with the country’s 20-15 nuclear deal, known as the J-C-P-O-A.
The agency says its inspectors have full access to all the sites they need to visit in Iran. Last May, United States withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal, re-imposing sanctions that had been lifted following the accord.
