Iran finds new oil customers despite US sanctions

Iran finds new oil customers despite US sanctions

"The United States will continue to unite sovereign nations in their responsibility to work for the peace and security of their own people and a stable worldwide order", he said at a meeting of the council on non-proliferation.

Trump has promised to bring Iran's oil exports down to zero, but he had to budge on the pledge in early November when he exempted eight major customers of Iranian oil from the sanctions. He said that it would be "helpful but could not resolve the problems since USA influence will affect any European action".

In his statement, Pompeo stated that with launches of such rockets, Iran was in "defiance of UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2231, which calls upon the Iranian regime not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons".

Iran is already in the grip of an economic crisis.

Iranian authorities announced last October they would launch three telecommunication and monitoring satellites, Payam-e-Amirkabir, Dusti and Nahid-1, in early 2019 as part of a project to acquire better possibilities for aviation. Previously in December, the USA accused Iran of test-firing a medium-range ballistic missile and declared that move in violation of 2231.

Sandra Oh just poked fun at Emma Stone 's role in Aloha! The LA Times confirmed that Stone did in fact yell it. "I've become the butt of many jokes", Stone said.

US President Donald Trump pulled out of Iran's historic nuclear deal with six world powers last May.

However, Tehran rejected the USA allegations that its space program is connected to its nuclear ambitions, and said that they did not violate a United Nations resolution.

But Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif rejected Pompeo's warning, saying their space launches and missile tests were not in violation of the resolution.

While Iran is denying the allegations, United States of America is prone to the nuclear attacks from Iran. The Simorgh, according to arms control experts, appears to use the same technology as North Korea's Unha SLV series, which the US intelligence community has concluded "could be used for an ICBM-class vehicle" capable of carrying nuclear weapons to the U.S.

Mike Pompeo said the technology planned to be used is "virtually" the same as that found in intercontinental ballistic missiles, raising concerns about its multiple applications. Will the USA warnings work on Tehran?
