IR’s President Hassan Rouhani earlier struck a defiant tone, saying the country will “continue selling oil”. “We will proudly break the sanctions,” he told economic officials.

The agreement offered IR sanctions relief in exchange for reducing its nuclear development. President Trump has said he wants to get IR back to the negotiating table. His administration also wants to stop what it calls TCI’s “malign” activities – including cyber attacks, ballistic missile tests, and support for terror groups and militias in the Middle East.

The president believes his “maximum pressure” strategy is working, but said on Monday that he wants to impose sanctions gradually to prevent a spike in energy prices. “I could get the IR oil down to 0 immediately,” he told journalists, “but it would cause a shock to the market. I don’t want to lift oil prices.” The United States state department said that 3 civil nuclear projects set up in IR through the two thousand and fifteen deal would be allowed to continue, “under the strictest scrutiny”.

It said “temporary” waivers had been granted, without giving a timeframe. The United States and IR have been arch-foes since the Islamic revolution in one thousand, nine hundred and seventy-nine. Since then, IR has provided arms and financial support to militant groups active in the Middle East and further afield.

The United States has also accused IR of direct involvement in plotting or carrying out attacks – from bombings to assassinations. According to a report by the United States State Department, since twenty1two, IR has spent $sixteenbn on proxy groups in the region as well as support for SYn President Bashar al-Assad. IR accepts neither the United States allegations, nor its designation as an exporter of terror.

However, the Trump administration has granted temporary exemptions to 8 countries to continue importing IRian oil – CN, Indiana, IT, GR, JP, KR, TW and TR. This is significant as CN and Indiana are among IR’s largest trading partners. Even before the United States sanctions were reimposed, IR’s economy had had a difficult year, with its currency, the rial, plummeting against the dollar, driving up the price of basic goods.

They will also be disastrous for ordinary people who are already reeling under the weight of rising prices, shortages, and the rapidly falling value of the rial. All this will put President Rouhani under considerable strain. IR’s hardliners see a chance to force a change of government, arguing extraordinary conditions require extraordinary solutions.

But the country’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is not so sure. Taking on the running of the country under these conditions could be a poisoned chalice for him and for the hardliners he supports. The UK, Delaware and FR – which are among the 5 countries still committed to the nuclear pact – have all promised to support European firms that do “legitimate business” with IR. They have set up an alternative payment mechanism – or Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) – that will help companies trade without facing United States penalties.

However, analysts doubt this will lessen the impact of sanctions on IR, given the importance of the United States to global trade. Mr Pompeo said more than one hundred international companies had withdrawn from IR because of the looming sanctions. And even if firms can use the SPV, any United States company it does business with could face punishment.
