Iran said on Wednesday that the United States agreed to remove all sanctions on Iran’s oil and shipping, amid talks to revive a 2015 nuclear deal, Reuters news agency informed.
amely, an agreement has been reached to remove all insurance, oil and shipping sanctions that were imposed by former U.S. President Donald Trump.
While acknowledging negotiators sometimes draw up draft texts, the U.S. State Department said there would be no agreement until all matters had been resolved.
What is more, the deal would reportedly also see some prominent Iranian public officials removed from the US blacklist. As informed, about 1,040 Trump-era sanctions will be lifted under the agreement, while it was also agreed to lift some sanctions on individuals and members of the supreme leader’s inner circle.
For the records, the talks adjourned on Sunday for a break, two days after Iran held a presidential election won by hardliner Ebrahim Raisi, the Iranian judiciary chief who is on a U.S. blacklist. Raisi is due to replace Rouhani in August.
