The sanctions are far-reaching, but eight countries have been granted temporary waivers to buy Iranian oil, including China and India.
Monday's action brings to more than 900 the number of Iranian entitiessanctioned by the Trump administration in almost two years.
The diplomat suggested that countries were beginning to see through the frequent use of the Iranian threat by the U.S. and its allies in shaping Middle East policy. "Therefore, we will proudly break the sanctions". It also covers an Iranian airline, Iran Air, and more than 65 of its aircraft. "But they're not doing very well", he said, referring to the economic setbacks the country has already faced because of an earlier round of us sanctions.
However, Iran's oil minister wrote to OPEC's secretary general calling for two committees that monitor an output deal with non-OPEC countries to be scrapped, accusing them of siding with the UnitedStates.
The new and harsh sanctions the Trump administration is imposing on the Iranian oil and gas industry are meant to further exacerbate the economic crisis in the Islamic Republic and consequently increase the public pressure on the leadership in Tehran. Those governments make up a majority or Iran's oil exports. "The maximum pressure exerted by the U.S.is only going to mount from here", he added.

Rouhani added that his country would resist efforts to punish it for its disputed nuclear program. The Administration has granted waivers to eight countries that have reduced their oil purchases from Iran but not stopped them entirely. The sanctions freeze any assets that those targeted have in US jurisdictions and bar Americans from doing business with them. "Enforcement from the USA could do a lot to change minds".

We told them that India is an energy reliant country and an abrupt reduction of oil imports from Iran will affect our economy.
"U.S. sanctions on Iran proved to be less severe than previously anticipated", said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at futures brokerage FXTM.
Iran, he said, has been able to sell as much oil as it needs despite U.S. pressure. A Democratic win could also harm US-Israel ties. Iran is already in the grip of an economic crisis.
"Permitting these specific activities to continue is an interim measure that preserves oversight of Iran's civil nuclear program", according to the statement, which has sparked fierce pushback from Iran hawks. USA officials said they expect the exempted companies to eventually cut all Iranian deals, but the waivers offer another avenue for Tehran to fight the sanctions.
"The Americans never really committed to the deal and the Iranian government did not spend the cash it got from the deal on the people".
He argued European leaders had now put behind them a period of "appeasement" of Trump in order to develop the special objective legal mechanism that they hope will enable companies to get around the U.S. penalties.
