US struggling to stop rising Iranian oil deliveries

(MENAFN) The U.S. State Department's special representative for Iran, Robert Malley, has stated that Washington is “not fine” with the higher trend in Iran's oil exports in latest months and will want to “do more” to discourage and put stress on countries buying more oil from Iran.

Malley made an announcement in an interview with Bloomberg TV that U.S. restrictions against Iran and its oil sales that have been applied since previous U.S. President Donald Trump removed Washington from the nuclear agreement in 2018 are still in place and have not been “loosened or decreased.”

He said that Iran's oil exports have increased since the end of 2022 and declared that Washington is actively watching the situation and reacting to stop the growing flows, mainly when it comes to China.

Since applying restrictions, China has been definitely the largest destination for Iranian crude.
