Iran has no fear over new U.S. sanctions: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani

"And that's important, because Iran remains - after a couple years plus of the JCPOA, they still remain the world's largest state sponsor of terror", he said. Through April, South Korea had imported an average of 300,000 bpd of Iranian oil, but in the months since Trump's decision, it tapered those purchases in anticipation of the sanctions.

All of Iran's oil exports and financial transactions will be targeted under U.S. sanctions that take force Monday, six months after President Donald Trump bolted from a nuclear deal.

The administration must maintain a delicate balancing act with the waivers: ensuring the oil market has sufficient supply and avoiding a politically damaging spike in fuel prices, while also ensuring that Iran's government doesn't collect enough revenue that the US sanctions become irrelevant.

Although China and India's Iranian oil intake in recent months has fluctuated, and although some of their companies most exposed to the US financial system have drastically reduced or outright stopped imports from Iran (like India's Reliance Industries), the countries saw their imports in the first three weeks of October increase or hold steady around the volumes from recent months.

Asked about reports that the U.S. was going to grant India waiver from the Iran sanctions, Spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs Raveesh Kumar said the government has not heard anything from Washington. The Bloomberg report however states that the waivers are temporary and the USA "expects" countries that are getting waivers to keep cutting Iranian imports in the coming months.

The US will reportedly offer major concessions to Iran that could allow the Islamic Republic to ease the pressure from upcoming economic sanctions.

"The United States is in the midst of an internal process to consider significant reduction exceptions for individual countries, but that is only on a case-by-case basis", State Department's Deputy Spokesperson Robert Paladino told reporters.

While European powers believe the deal has been successful and have sought to preserve trade with Iran, most major companies have chosen to exit the country rather than incur the wrath of United States authorities.

Federica Mogherini believes that despite the new rollout of sanctions, trade between Europe and Iran will continue in defiance of Mr. Trump. "There is much more that it's going to need to do", he said.

Trump said that in addition to the November sanctions, the U.S. "The people of Iran should know with certainty that the government has no fear of the new American threats".

He added: "In the past few months our people have faced hard times and it's possible that the next few months will be hard". Iran used the funds to buy goods from India.
