Pompeo says Iran sanctions will be enforced

Pompeo says Iran sanctions will be enforced

Supporters of the Iran agreement have long argued that the USA departure would alienate European allies who partnered with the U.S.in the negotiations.

The tweet was reverberating across the Middle East.

If Iran senses "American steel they back down, if they perceive American mush they push forward - and right now they perceive steel", said Mark Dubowitz, chief executive of Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a Washington think tank that lobbied for a renegotiation of the Iran nuclear deal.

But Trump's withdrawal from the Iran deal has tanked its economy badly.

The autarkic "resistance" model showed its limits in terms of ensuring the growth of Iran's economy and sating the demands of Iran's youthful demographic, sparking calls by factions among Iran's elites to secure foreign investments.

Iran has been furious over U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of an worldwide nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions on Tehran.

In short, Trump withdrew from the Iran deal, likely imposed tremendous cost and stress on Tehran's economy, and Iran has responded by staying in the deal and trying to portray itself as a good actor worthy of the world's support against U.S. hegemony. I will meet, or not meet, it doesn't matter - it is up to them!

As Tuesday, the Iran government can no longer buy USA bank notes and broad sanctions will be slapped on Iranian industries, including its rug exports.

Come August 6, Iran will no longer be able to buy or acquire USA dollars.

Washington's so-called "snapback" sanctions are due to be reinstated against Tehran at 12:01 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, a U.S. Treasury official said, speaking on condition anonymity.

Trump and other officials have expressed hopes that the sanctions and demonstrations will help put pressure on the government to come back to the negotiating table.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated on Sunday that he would appear at an open session of the parliament to answer questions on his cabinet's economic performance and agenda, as requested by the lawmakers.

The United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Russian Federation - the other signatories to the JCPOA - have criticized America's decision to quit the deal.

Motahari, renowned for not mincing his words, has dismissed Jafari's remarks as unwarranted, reiterating, "You [Gen.] and our other good "mujahid" brothers in IRGC are aware of the fact that in issues concerning talks with the United States, or refrain from any negotiations with it, IRGC should obey the decision made by top authorities of the regime and avoid making personal comments". I'm ready to meet whenever they want to.
