 US State Department: 8 countries are exempt from sanctions against Iraq for 180 days.


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.
