Iran erupts as United States oil sanctions return

Iran's Khamenei claims Trump has ‘disgraced’ US prestige as renewed sanctions set to enter force Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Rallies replete with "Death to America" chants are staged on the embassy takeover anniversary every year, but US-Iranian rancour is especially strong this year following Trump's decision in May to withdraw the United States from a 2015 worldwide nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions on Tehran.

On late Friday, Turkey's Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Donmez said they have information that the USA will grant Turkey a waiver to continue importing oil from Iran after sanctions, but they don't have all the details yet.

The oil and financial sanctions end all the economic benefits the U.S. granted to Tehran for its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, even though Iran has been abiding by the accord that saw it limit its enrichment of uranium.

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman welcomed U.S. sanctions that took effect Monday targeting Iran's oil and financial sectors, calling it a "critical" blow to Tehran's actions in the region.

The new wave of sanctions, the second since August, will target Iran's energy, shipbuilding, shipping, and financial sectors.

He said: "I announce that we will proudly bypass your illegal, unjust sanctions because it's against global regulations".

"The Iran sanctions are very strong".

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says Iranian crude exports are already down by 1 million barrels a day.

The US is seeking to "alter" Iranian behavior with the sanctions, and has been leaking out a stream of 12 demands it wants to see Iran agree to in exchange for re-lifting the economic penalties.

When we planned and worked on those moments through the week, we knew they are strong in those situations. Glenn Murray scored the lone goal for the Seagulls against Wolves.

The deal - agreed by the US, China, Russia, France, Germany and the United Kingdom - brought about the lifting of most worldwide financial and economic sanctions on Iran in return for Tehran curbing its disputed nuclear activity under UN surveillance.

"Watch what we do", Pompeo said in an interview to Fox News in response to a direct question if the United States has a firm commitment from China and India that they will reduce their intake to zero in six months, the duration of the exemption.

"We are in the economic war situation", he said.

Washington has also said that it wanted to stop what it calls Teheran's "malign" activities including cyber attacks, ballistic missile tests, and support for terror groups and militias in the Middle East.

The countries will deposit Iran's revenue in an escrow account, US officials have said.

"Today, Iran is able to sell its oil and it will sell", Rouhani vowed Monday as the sanctions kicked in.

Another demonstrator Sunday, Jamshid Zarei, waved a banner in English quoting Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei saying: "America can't do a damn thing". "The new sanctions might prove to be costly if the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with spare production capacity, is unable or unwilling to put more oil in the market".

Earlier, thousands of Iranians chanted "Death to America" at a rally to mark the anniversary of the seizure of the U.S. Embassy during the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Oil markets have already adjusted to the Iran sanctions, gradually dialing back imports in preparations.
