Iran to continue nuclear enrichment despite United States move: Parliament speaker

Shale,India oil import,US shale Iran to continue nuclear enrichment despite United States move: Parliament speaker

Ironically, the evidence-free claim comes as the United States steered a carrier strike group into the Persian Gulf to "send a message" to Tehran - not exactly an olive branch gesture in itself. "We will hold the Iranian regime accountable for any attack on U.S. forces or our interests", Shanahan tweeted. The United States also blacklisted Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The Iranian deputy oil minister offered no details regarding recent gray market sales of the nation's exports.

The news site Axios said Bolton's warning came after Israel, which has pushed to isolate Iran, passed along intelligence of a possible plot by Tehran "against a usa target in the Gulf or U.S. allies like Saudi Arabia or the UAE".

CNN's Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr tweeted dramatically on Monday afternoon that United States officials had told her of credible "intelligence" on "threats from Iran" which included the targeting of USA forces in "Syria, Iraq and at sea".

Mark Dubowitz, chief executive of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, which advocates a hard line on Iran, said he had heard of a "spike" in intelligence in recent days about planned attacks. Exports are underway as planned, he said. Just one hour later, acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan tweeted similarly about "indications of a credible threat" from Iran.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday he would raise tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods from 10 to 25 percent by Friday, comments that dragged down Asian and U.S. stock markets.

"Given Bolton's record", she said, "I wouldn't put it past him to try to manufacture a crisis here".

A court in Iran has sentenced President Hassan Rouhani's younger brother to an unspecified jail term in a corruption case that supporters of the Iranian leader allege is politically motivated.

"Previous statements from the Trump administration asserted that Washington was attempting to slow Iran's growing regional influence while stopping its program of developing ballistic missile technology, according to Reuters".

"Iran has stated that it will treat such a reintroduction or reimposition of the sanctions ... or such an imposition of new nuclear-related sanctions, as grounds to cease performing its commitments under this JCPOA in whole or in part".
