Obama’s administration said that they imposed sanctions on Iran to punish them for their nuclear ambitions. We had applauded him for it.
But the State Department has announced on Tuesday that they will exempt 10 European countries and Japan from the penalties associated with doing business with Iran.
These are the countries:
- Czech Republic
- United Kingdom
And according to Hillary Clinton, this was an “initial group” of countries. So what does that mean? There may be more countries exempted from these sanctions? What good are the sanctions?
There are 12 countries importing Iranian oil that were not exempted. The major ones are: China, Turkey, India, and South Korea.
