Iran: US wish to halt Iran's crude exports won't come true

  • Secretary of State Mike Pompeo makes a statement to the media Sept. 17 2018 at the State Department in Washington

"South Korea was the first country to halt Iran's oil imports following the US sanction threats against the country", Kasra Nouri, the public relation manager of the ministry, was quoted as saying by SHANA news agency.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday vowed to boost his country's ballistic missile capabilities despite the United States withdrawing from a multilateral nuclear deal with Tehran in May, AFP reported.

Trump had tweeted on Friday that his visit to the United Nations would focus on Iran, while White House officials said that the meeting would focus on halting the spread of nuclear weapons. Washington wants to reduce Iran's oil exports effectively to zero with renewed sanctions in November and has been encouraging its allies to cut their oil imports from Iran.

The statement said that the participants also "welcomed the fact that updates to the EU's "Blocking Statute" and the European Investment Bank's external lending mandate to make Iran eligible entered into force on 7 August".

With Iran's economy already feeling the pinch, United States national security adviser John Bolton earlier Monday vowed to impose "maximum pressure" on Tehran, while insisting that Washington was not pushing for regime change.

European Union's Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif held a joint press conference on Monday night (New York local time) to elaborate on the results of a meeting between the remaining parties of JCPOA, namely France, the UK, Germany, Russia, China, and Iran.

Iran's rial currency has lost half its value in the past few months and fear of economic hardship has led to sporadic protests in several cities, with ordinary Iranians chanting slogans against Iranian leaders.

At least 129 countries signed a nonbinding pledge, drafted by the US, to take steps to reduce the demand for drugs in their countries, Reuters reported.

Despite Iran's fragile economy, weakened by decades of sanctions, corruption and mismanagement, it will be hard for Rouhani to consider diplomacy with the United States, which is rejected by Iran's powerful hardliners.

UNITED NATIONS - The remaining parties to the Iran nuclear deal on Monday agreed to keep working to maintain trade with Tehran despite skepticism this is possible as U.S. sanctions to choke off Iranian oil sales resume in November. European countries are trying to salvage the landmark accord. Kharg Island provides a sea port for the export of oil and extends Iranian territorial sea claims into the Gulf oil fields.

"Rouhani's political career is in danger if he talks to Trump because then the multinational nuclear deal will be out of the picture and Rouhani will lose the support of his European allies for ignoring them", said a senior Iranian official from Tehran.
