Iran president warns of economic 'war situation' as sanctions resume

Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari speaks during a demonstration outside the former US embassy in the Iranian capital Tehran

This year´s 39th anniversary fell just hours before Washington was set to reimpose sanctions - including an oil embargo - following its withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal earlier this year.

Iranian state television aired footage of defense drills taking place in the country's north through Tuesday as President Hassan Rouhani said the nation faces a "war situation" against a "bullying enemy".

Aside from economic opportunities, Trump White House critics claim Washington's exit from the Iran nuclear deal and the renewal of sanctions would reignite Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

Other countries were given partial waivers after they demonstrated that they were making serious efforts to reduce their Iranian oil imports.

Details of the sanctions will be released at a news conference scheduled for 8:30 a.m. EST (1330 GMT) with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

France, Germany, Britain, and the European Union issued a joint condemnation Friday of the U.S. move, vowing to protect European companies doing "legitimate" business with Tehran. "They wanted to take over the whole Middle East. The main objective from the U.S. side is to force Iran to accept most - if not all - of its 12 conditions and demands".

The community gathered Sunday night to remember four lives taken suddenly in a hit-and-run crash, reports CBS Minnesota. Daniel Sokup says the pickup crossed a lane Saturday morning and veered into a roadside ditch, striking the victims.

US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew Washington from the pact in May despite objections from close allies in Europe.

"All eyes will be on Iranian exports, whether there will be some cheating around U.S. sanctions, and on how quickly production will fall", said Riccardo Fabiani, an analyst for Energy Aspects.

"They need a little bit more time to get to zero", Pompeo explained. "We are prepared to resist any pressure", Rouhani said.

All of that said, as Pompeo noted on Friday, the waivers are not full waivers.

"This is an economic war against Iran but".

However, Iran's clerical rulers have dismissed concerns about the impact of sanctions on the country's economy. While at the moment not threatening to resume higher enrichment, Iranian officials in recent months have made a point to warn the controversial process could resume at any time, faster than before.

China, India, South Korea, Turkey, Italy, the United Arab Emirates and Japan have been the top importers of Iran's oil, while Taiwan occasionally buys cargoes of Iranian crude but is not a major buyer.

Iranian state media said millions turned out for rallies in most cities and towns around the country, swearing allegiance to the clerical establishment and its hardline authority, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Next, add the ongoing massive trade war between the U.S. and China, such that the impact of United States sanctions against China relating to Iran are really a small piece of a much bigger game.

The US will from Monday target buyers of Iranian oil in order to deprive Tehran of its main source of income.

Later, a senior State Department official told reporters that that the US was ready for talks with Iran.

It is 39 years since 52 American citizens were taken hostage and held for 444 days after hardline students stormed the USA embassy.
