US suggests wiggle room for some countries on Iran sanctions

WASHINGTON - Some countries continuing to import Iranian oil could avoid sanctions after restrictions are re-imposed in November following the American withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, the State Department said Monday.


The US is "not looking to grant licenses or waivers," said director for policy planning Brian Hook, but "we are prepared to work with countries that are reducing their imports on a case-by-case basis."


Hook said the US sanctions on Iranian trade in automobiles, gold and other key metals will be re-imposed on Aug. 6 while sanctions targeting energy and banking will be reinforced Nov. 4.
