Former Iranian Ambassador to Iraq Hassan Danaeefar said the United State can't limit Iranian revenues anymore.

Speaking to ILNA news agency, he added that United State start new game in international stage but this time European Union and other powerful countries do not follow the United States.

Referring to US President Donald Trump has decided to end exemptions from sanctions for countries still buying oil from Iran, he said that Trump seek a maximum pressure on the Islamic Republic of Iran.

He added that they started an exclusive game but in the past international powers followed the Washington policy.

Hasan Danaeifar also explained a comprehensive report on the economic potentials and capabilities of Iran in countering US unilateral and illegal sanctions and emphasized on the high power and strength of the Islamic Republic of Iran to move out of sanctions.

 “I don’t think the Iranians are coming to these talks because they suddenly changed their minds about anything,” the diplomat said.

Former Iranian Ambassador to Iraq insisted that in spite of the enormous pressures from Washington to Iraqi goverment, Iran's exports to Iraq are under way.

"We have also encouraged Iraq to have two-way exchanges with Iran," he said.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will announce Iran's step-by-step program on taking measures in response to the withdrawal of the US from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) during a live television program on May 8, 2019, an official close to the JCPOA Supervisory Board told.

The White House said waivers for China, India, Japan, South Korea and Turkey have expired, after which they could face US sanctions themselves. This decision is intended to bring Iran's oil exports to zero, denying the government its main source of revenue.

Turkey and China are the only two countries so far to have expressed a desire to continue large purchases of Iranian crude. Other major buyers, such as India, Japan and South Korea, have signaled they would bow to US pressure.
