Mauritanian party slams US move to cancel Iran sanctions wavers

Tehran, The Welfare Party of Mauritania has issued a statement to condemn US President Donald Trump's move not to renew the wavers to Iran oil sanctions.

In the statement, a copy of which was obtained by IRNA, the party said that the US has repeatedly shown that it will continue with its hostility toward Iran so it is now trying to pressure Iran through sanctioning the countries that have trades with it.

All the US is doing is to support the Zionist regime and to pave the way to implement 'the Deal of the Century', and furthermore, to weaken the Iranian economy as a country which is against Zionists.

Expressing disgust over some Arab countries' policies led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE which have committed themselves with making up for the oil shortage due to US sanctions on Iran, the statement added, 'The sanctions will further strengthen Iran's authority and power.'

The Welfare Party expressed support for Iran and urged the Arab and Muslim countries as well as freedomseekers across the world to support Iran against the US move.

On Monday, the White House announced that the US President Donald Trump is ending sanction waivers for Iranian oil importers in order to exert 'maximum pressure' on Tehran.

In May, 2018, Trump announced that he has decided to withdraw the US from the universally confirmed Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as Iran Deal and to restore the US sanctions on Iran.

The move was not welcomed by the other signatures of the deal or any other countries or international organizations, except for Saudi Arabia, the UAE and the Zionist regime.

The remaining countries reiterated adherence to the deal and under different circumstances voiced willingness to do business with Iran. Therefore, they devised a mechanism for that purpose named Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges (INSTEX).

Washington had announced that he is going to bring oil export of Iran to zero but had to give eight countries exemptions from the decision: India, Japan, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Taiwan, Italy and Greece, and renew the waiver twice.
