Jan. 7, 2019 -  Amir Hossein Zamani, the deputy oil minister of Hassan Rouhani’s cabinet, said, “The oil customers of Iran aren’t willing to buy an extra barrel more than the quota the U.S. has defined.”

Zamani added, “The pressure and influence of the U.S. is to the extent that China, India, Japan, South Korea and other countries who have obtained exemptions from the U.S. are not willing to buy a single barrel more from Iran than the exemption they’ve received.”

The U.S. re-imposed sanctions on the Iranian regime following its withdrawal from the nuclear deal which had given Tehran relief from international sanctions in exchange for limiting its nuclear program. The U.S. government has demanded the Iranian regime to tone down its other nefarious activities, including the development of ballistic missiles and terrorist meddling in neighboring countries. The sanctions have targeted the oil and financial sector of the Iranian regime and will largely constrain its capabilities to fund terrorism in the countries of the Middle East.

The U.S. also gave exemptions to several countries that were previously importing oil from Iran on conditions that they take steps to gradually decrease their imports. The U.S. has stated that its goal is to reduce the Iranian regime’s oil exports to zero.

Since the sanctions came into effect, the price of oil has reduced. The deputy oil minister of the Iranian regime did not exactly state how much oil the regime was exporting and only declared, “The oil sector is trying sell as much oil as it can.”

Zamani also said, “Iran lost the opportunity provided by JCPOA,” using the acronym for the nuclear deal forged between the Iranian regime world powers.
