US to pressure China into foregoing Iran oil imports

“China is the main destination of illicit exports by Iran,” and talks to dissuade Beijing from the purchases are “going to be intensified,” Malley said in a Bloomberg Television interview Monday.

The US will “take steps that we need to take in order to stop the export of Iranian oil and deter countries from buying it,” Malley added. “We have not lessened any of our sanctions against Iran and in particular regards to Iran’s sale of oil.”

Former US President Donald Trump left the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in May 2018 and reimposed the anti-Iran sanctions that the deal had lifted. Tehran’s oil exports have been limited since then. He also placed additional sanctions on Iran under other pretexts not related to the nuclear case as part of his “maximum pressure” campaign.
