Iran receives more airplanes ahead of renewed USA sanctions

Iran receives more airplanes ahead of renewed USA sanctions

Iran's oil exports could fall by as much as two-thirds by the end of the year because of the United States sanctions, putting oil markets under strain amid supply outages elsewhere in the world.

China has rejected a demand by the United States to cut Iranian oil imports, according to Bloomberg news agency, which cited two officials familiar with the negotiations.

Teams of USA officials have been visiting capitals around the world to try to choke off sales of Iranian oil by early November, when US sanctions are due to snap back into effect.

They said they remained committed to the 2015 accord and to building up economic relations with Iran, including "the continuation of Iran's export of oil and gas" and other energy products.

If the USA wants negotiations, it should stop pressures and sanctions, Qasemi was quoted as saying by official IRNA news agency.

He also said Tehran expects the European countries to bring forward a practical package of proposals to salvage Iranian nuclear deal, also known as JCPOA, after the US pull-out in May.

The rhetoric between the US and Iran remains heated, despite Trump tweeting last week that he would be willing to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Trump made that much known in a Twitter post days ago during a joint White House news conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.

Also last month, China, which is Iran's biggest customer, said it did not accept unilateral sanctions against Iran.

The nuclear deal lifted worldwide sanctions in return for Iran limiting its nuclear program and allowing regular inspections.

Chinese and Indian companies "will be subject to the same sanctions that everybody else's are if they engage in those sectors of the economy that are sanctionable", a State Department official told reporters in June.

"China will continue to cooperate with Iran adhering to its worldwide obligations".

Reuters reported last week that India's oil industry is preparing for a blanket cut in Iranian imports, although officials from the two countries continue to hold talks on the issue.

The officials who spoke to Reuters said the campaign, consisting of speeches and online material paints Iranian leaders in a harsh light, at times using information that is exaggerated or contradicts other official pronouncements, including comments by previous administrations.
