Iran to Sell Oil under Any Conditions

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani underlined failure of Washington’s policy to zero down the country’s crude exports, stressing that Tehran would find a way to sell its oil under any conditions.

“The Americans, themselves, have admitted that they have failed in preventing our oil sales in the market; even if they did not declare failure and did not exempt a number of countries, we would sell our oil and sell it under any conditions,” President Rouhani said in a meeting with high-ranking economic managers in Tehran on Monday.

He warned that the US aims to weaken Iran and disappoint the Iranian nation, and voiced confidence in Washington’s failure.

“Iran will continue its powerfulness and the Iranian nation will continue its path with hope,” President Rouhani said.

He, meantime, said despite short-term goals, the US sanctions will harm Washington in the long run.

“Today, we are in a position that international organizations and the world public opinion support us,” Rouhani said.

The US Treasury Department announced all sanctions on Iran lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal would be back in force on November 5.

But the Trump administration declared on Friday that it will allow eight countries to import limited amounts of Iranian oil even after US sanctions take effect on Monday in a clear move to damp fears about a shortage of supplies.

According to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the sweeping sanctions will see 700 people blacklisted, including people who were granted relief under the 2015 deal, as well as over 300 new names.

The Iranian officials have downplayed the effects of new sanctions on the country and its oil exports.

In relevant remarks on Saturday night, Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Brigadier General Hossein Salami underlined that the US administration’s decision to grant eight jurisdictions on special exceptions to continue importing oil from Iran indicated Washington’s failure in advancing its hostile policies.

“The US first said that it would zero down Iran’s crude exports, but they changed it later because they came to realize that they cannot materialize their demand and you saw that they exempted 8 countries from their sanctions against Iran and this is a manifestation of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s victory,” General Salami said in an interview with the state TV.

“Exemption of 8 countries from the oil sanctions shows their weakness and incapability. I believe that the Americans are only practicing inability, in dealing with us,” he added.(FNA)
