Iran to North Korea: US Can't Be Trusted

TENSE IN TEHRAN: The President Slams Iran With 'MOST BITING SANCTIONS EVER IMPOSED'

"They can not think that Iran won't export oil and others will export.".

At current market rates, the imports are worth about $15bn.

The top USA general in the Middle East on Wednesday said the military remains "extraordinarily vigilant" about Iranian movements in the Persian Gulf following last week's Iranian naval exercise in and around the Strait of Hormuz.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters that the global reaction to Trump's move showed that the United States was diplomatically isolated.

China and Germany defended their business ties with Iran on Wednesday in the face of President Donald Trump's warning that any companies trading with the Islamic Republic would be barred from the United States.

Gholamali Khoshroo argues in a commentary published by the Guardian on Wednesday that by abrogating a multilateral 2015 nuclear deal and imposing new sanctions on foreign companies doing business with Iran, the Trump administration is also reneging on UNSC resolution 2231.

The comments from Beijing and Berlin signaled growing anger from partners of the United States, which reimposed strict sanctions against Iran on Tuesday, over its threat to penalize businesses from third countries that continue to operate there.

The Defense Department announced last week that it was monitoring a major Iranian naval exercise that began August 2 in the vicinity of the Strait of Hormuz, timed to coincide with the USA reimposition of stringent economic sanctions on Iran restricting trade, export of certain products, and the ability to purchase US currency.

The Iranian rial fell to a record low late last month, dropping in value by half since April, leading to sharp price increases and fast-rising inflation.

"Wherever you see Iranian activity, you see Qassem Soleimani". "I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less!" he tweeted.

Already facing broad economic fallout as their currency implodes, Iranians are wondering how the next phase of the crisis in United States relations will play out - and what, exactly, America's long-term strategy is toward their country.

"America has zigzagged constantly, so now no one trusts them", he said.

President Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal in May, calling it "disaster".

Long-running discontent over high prices, unemployment, water shortages and the lack of political reform has sparked numerous protests over the past week, though verifiable information is scarce due to heavy reporting restrictions. Ali Vaez, Iran project director for the International Crisis Group, told AFP that the sanctions would inflict "significant harm" on the Iranian economy.
