 US State Department: 8 countries exemption period is 180 days for sanctions against Iraq.


Overseas Network, Nov. 3, according to Russian Satellite Network, the U.S. State Departments Special Representative for Iran, Brian Hooker, said on the 2nd that the United States would grant eight countries temporary exemptions from sanctions against Iran for 180 days without intending to extend the period.

Earlier, U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said that the United States would grant temporary exemptions to eight countries that import Iranian oil in the sanctions against Iraq, and the specific list would be released on the 5th. In response, Iranian Deputy Minister of Oil Kador said that the exemption showed that the oil market needs Iran, Iran can not completely withdraw.

On November 2, US Secretary of State Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin issued a statement announcing that sanctions on Irans energy and banking sectors would be restarted on November 5. U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo said the latest targets of sanctions will include Irans energy, shipbuilding, transportation and financial industries. The United States will impose sanctions on countries and enterprises that continue to buy Iranian oil and do business with blacklisted Iranian companies starting November 5. The six countries on Irans nuclear issue signed an agreement with Iran in 2015 to lift sanctions against Iran in exchange for restrictions on Irans nuclear program. But Trump was unhappy with the terms of the Iran nuclear agreement, which he believed was limited to Iran. Although U.N. investigators say Iran has not violated the agreement, senior U.S. officials have repeatedly said that Iran has complied with the agreement from a technical point of view.
