Iran’s leadership reacted to USA’s move to choke the middle-east nation’s income. Iran’s Supreme Leader, and President said that the nation will continue to export oil. USA won’t renew exemptions from sanctions for 8 nations, including India, to buy Iranian oil. The US announced the sanctions in November but some countries got temporary waivers that allowed them to import Iranian oil. Washington now says those waivers - which primarily impact China, India, Japan, South Korea and Turkey - will expire on 2 May. Speaking at a cabinet meeting in Tehran on Wednesday, Rouhani said “Iran’s oil exports will not be zero” despite Trump “playing such games”.
