Trump's Iran zero oil plan hits snag

"The challenge between the U.S. and Iran has lasted for 40 years so far and the United States has made various efforts against us: military, economic and media warfare", he said.

Mr Trump said the United States had made progress with China over their trade dispute and he predicted that the two countries would reach "a very fair deal for everybody".

"Hon'ble Prime Minister's forceful campaign has been that you can't ignore interests of consuming countries". The deal saw Iran limit its controversial nuclear activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

Barack Obama, the United States president at the time, had argued the deal would prevent Iran from developing nuclear arms.

"We would lose foreign currency revenue had we'd been hit by the sanctions". Mr Trump argues that the terms of the deal are unacceptable and it has not stopped Iran developing a ballistic missile programme and intervening in neighbouring countries, including Syria and Yemen. Trump's decision was welcomed by Washington's Sunni Muslim Gulf Arab allies, involved in proxy conflict with Shi'ite Iran for decades. On Monday, the USA pullout from that deal will be complete, with sanctions back in place. That was one of the most ridiculous deals ever made by any country, at any time: "the Iran nuclear deal", he said. "The whole world understands these sanctions are real", he said during an interview of CBS's Face the Nation.

"Until then, our historic sanctions will remain in full force", he said, hours after his two Cabinet members, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, announced that the USA would reimpose a series of crippling sanctions on Iran beginning on Monday.

The waivers will be valid for six months, during which time the importing country can buy Iranian oil but must deposit Iran's revenue in an escrow account. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has confirmed in twelve consecutive reports that Iran is abiding by its commitments under the Agreement.

Foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi told state TV that Iran had "the knowledge and the capability to manage the country's economic affairs". "But banks must be very careful that these are not disguised transactions or they could be subject to certain sanctions".

Indian Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said his country and other leading oil importers would benefit from the US waivers.

Three Iraqi officials said on Friday that the USA has informed Baghdad it will be allowed to keep importing crucial gas, energy supplies and food items from Iran after Washington reimposes sanctions on Tehran's oil sector, according to Reuters.

Demonstrators in Tehran gathered on Sunday outside the former U.S. diplomatic mission, also known as the "Den of Espionage", chanting slogans against the United States. In anticipation of sanctions, oil exports from Iran have already dropped by about a third since May.

China, the largest buyer of Iranian oil, has been surprisingly willing to play ball with sanctions so far, in part because it has bigger fish to fry in the form of its ongoing trade war with Washington. But senior administration officials refused to spell out the names on Friday.

Donald Trump's administration said that all sanctions on Iran, which were lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, are to be reimposed.
