Iran Receives More Airplanes Ahead of Renewed US Sanctions

Iran Receives More Airplanes Ahead of Renewed US Sanctions

"On issues like negotiating with the United States, the IRGC should obey the establishment's decision", Motahari said on August 2.

The return of sanctions will make things only slightly harder for them, as major worldwide banks were already too scared of United States penalties to work with Iran even before Trump tore up the agreement.

Trump had denounced the deal reached under his White House predecessor, Barack Obama, as one-sided in Iran's favour.

Starting this week, Washington will re-impose sanctions on Iran's purchases of US dollars, its trade in gold and precious metals, and its dealings with metals, coal and industrial-related software.

As Iran reels from the economic war the waging on it, the country is hoping to avoid further damage from fast-approaching sanctions by launching a new digital currency, according to Iranian media reports.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Tehran does not seek to escalate regional tensions or to cause any problem for global waterways but will not give up its right to export oil.

Iran's economy has rapidly deteriorated in recent months due in part to uncertainty over the atomic accord, fueling protests.

For Iranian leaders to smile and shake Trump's hand would symbolize a deep capitulation and recognition that the USA holds tremendous power over Tehran, and that their values of opposing USA hegemony stand subordinate to their will to survive economically, for which they'll need a benevolent Trump.

Officials have urged Iranian citizens to remain calm and to hold out through the rough times promised by Washington, noting that the country will weather the latest storm wrought by Trump and his apparently "regime change"-focused administration of pro-Israeli, pro-Saudi hawks".

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he supports Trump's willingness to sit down and talk with Iranian leaders. Authorities reported the first fatality among protesters, with the shooting of a man in Karaj, west of Tehran.

Protests have broken out in Iran since the beginning of the year over high prices, water shortage, power cuts and alleged corruption.

Responding to the tentative offer, IRGC-run Fars cited Jafari as saying, "Former U.S. presidents learned better than Trump that Iran and its people could not be threatened, and that they would instead close their ranks and strengthen their unity against any foreign threat and pressure". "They have got to behave like a normal country", he said, describing Iranian leaders as "bad actors".

Mohammad Ali Jafari, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), jumped the gun and said the Iranian people would not permit any politician to sit down and talk to Trump.
