INU - The Secretary of State Mike Pompeo annouced today that the US will not renew sanctions waivers for the five countries, including Japan, China, India, South Korea and Turkey, when they expire on May 2. However, it is not clear whether any of the five will be given a wind-down period to end their imports or whether they would immediately be subject to sanctions on May 3.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi the president elect of the Iranian resistance in a series of tweets stated:
The Iranian people and Resistance have been demanding the imposition of an oil and arms embargo on the mullahs’ anti-human, anti-Iranian regime since 4 decades ago.
Oil is a national treasure and must be put in the service of the Iranian people’s welfare and advancement. But the mullahs either plunder it or spend it on suppression and exporting terrorism and war.
Oil embargo and Blacklisting of the IRGC must be complemented by other measures, including the recognition of the right of the Iranian people and Resistance to overthrow the religious dictatorship and designating other organs of repression, expelling MOIS (Ministry of intelligence) and IRGC agents from US and Europe
These measure should include referring the dossier on the regime’s Human rights abuses and 1988 Massacre of political prisoners to UN Security Council
These measure should also include forming international delegations to visit the political prisoners in Iran, expelling mullahs’ regime from the UN, recognizing the representation of the Iranian Resistance and evicting the regime and its forces from countries in the region.
