WASHINGTON: The United States on Saturday send strong warning to countries continuing to engage in economic activities with Iran after its sanction against Tehran becomes fully operational on November 4.
“Make no mistake about it, come November 4 (and) there will be a fundamentally different set of rules with respect to anyone who deems it necessary to engage in economic activities with the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters at a news conference in Washington.
The new warning might affect Indias as it is one of the biggest importers of the Iranaian oil and is currently developing the strategic Chabahar port.
Officials of the two countries are having an ongoing discussion on both the issues. This includes the meeting between the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with the National Security Advisor Ajit Doval at the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the State Department. The meeting took place immediately after Pompeo’s press conference.
“There are still a number of decisions pending before the November 4 deadline that we’ve got to make about waivers or potential waivers, and we’re working our way through each of them,” Pompeo said.
