USA tightens sanctions against Iran

The United States imposed sanctions against the network of Chinese, Emirates companies that they accuse of helping and selling Iranian oil and petrochemical products to East Asia, writers writes.

The US Department of Finance said that this network of individuals and legal entities used fake companies in the Persian Gulf to promote the delivery and sale of Iranian companies for hundreds of millions of dollars to China and other East Asian countries. It is noted that Washington increasingly presses on Chinese companies due to the export of Iranian petrochemical products, since the prospects for the revival of the nuclear pact are reduced.

“Although the United States is committed to reaching an agreement with Iran, aimed at mutual return to compliance with the nuclear transaction of 2015, we will continue to use all our powers to ensure compliance with sanctions in relation to the sale of Iranian oil and petrochemical products,” said Deputy Minister of Finance for Finance for Finance for Finance issues of terrorism and financial intelligence Brian Nelson.

In addition, Edgar Commercial Solutions FZE from the United Arab Emirates fell under sanctions, which, according to the Ministry of Finance, purchased and exported petrochemical products from Iranian companies under sanctions. According to Brian, given the obvious unwillingness of Iran to return to a nuclear deal, he expects Washington to rely on China more. “I think that the signal of Beijing is as follows: until Iran is seriously returning to the conditions of JCPOA, you need to stop the import of Iranian oil,” he said.

According to the decision, American assets of those who are on the list are frozen, and generally forbids the Americans to deal with them. Those who are dealing with these persons and organizations can also fall under sanctions.
