Reuters revealed, on Monday, that the United States of America imported Iranian oil during the year 2021, despite the sanctions imposed on Tehran, noting that this is the first time in 30 years.
Data from the US Energy Information Administration showed, "The United States imported a rare shipment of 1.033 million barrels of Iranian crude last March, despite the sanctions imposed on the Iranian energy sector."
The energy data indicated that “the shipment represents the second state import of oil from Iran since late 1991.
The United States of America imposes sanctions targeting the oil sector in Iran by placing entities and individuals on the US sanctions list, including Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh, under the pretext of their support for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
In September 2019, the United States announced its intention to impose sanctions on any country that deals with or buys oil from Iran, after the Trump administration withdrew from the nuclear deal with Iran.
