to questions from Hussein Ali Haji Daligani, who represents Shahin Shahr at the
parliament, Mr. Zarif declared that US President Donald Trump had backed down
on his claims to bring to zero sales of Iranian oil.
He said the
Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), from which Washington pulled out in
May, was so substantial that was endorsed globally while preserving Iran’s
will, we may progress our nuclear program must stronger than before; a decision
that the Islamic establishment needs to take.”
The Trump administration will grant eight jurisdictions waivers that will allow them to continue purchasing Iranian oil.
U.S. sanctions on Iran's energy sector, shipping, ship-building and financial industries snap back into place on Monday.
US officials have declined to say which countries would receive waivers, but China, Japan, India and South Korea are expected to be among them.
