The United States will sanction any country that imports Iranian oil and currently does not have an exemption, US Special Envoy for Iran Brian Hook said today.
– We will sanction every import of Iranian oil. There are no exemptions at the moment, “Huk told reporters in London in response to a question about the sale of Iranian oil to Asia, according to Reuters.
Hooke added that the US will review oil reports from Iran going from China, and reiterated that the US will “sanction any illegal purchase of Iranian oil”.
US President Donald Tramp signed a decree Monday imposing “heavy sanctions” on Iran’s top leader Ayatollah Aliyah Hamnei and senior Iranian officials in an effort to boost pressure on official Tehran after the Iranian collapse of an American drone last week.
