Iran eases currency rules, hoping to buoy rial ahead of sanctions

06 August 2018

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated on Sunday that he would appear at an open session of the parliament to answer questions on his cabinet's economic performance and agenda, as requested by the lawmakers.

Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, who heads the parliamentary committee on national security and foreign policy, suggested a United States return to the nuclear deal would be needed before Tehran could think of negotiating.

"This is just about Iranians' dissatisfaction with their own government, and the President is pretty clear, we want the Iranian people to have a strong voice in who their leadership will be".

"NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE", Trump wrote.

US officials last week said Iran carried out a similar exercise, though Tehran did not immediately acknowledge it.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said his nation will work to save the Iranian nuclear deal to ensure Iranian oil will continue to flow through the market, during a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Zarif.

Trump's whiplash between threats and diplomacy prompted déjà vu for some who saw similarities to how Trump approached North Korea.

Though the U.S. sanctions post-deal will be unilateral and not as strong as the pre-deal UN-imposed sanctions, fear angering the United States, the world's largest economy, will likely scare off Europeans who are otherwise committed to the deal.

Trump became the first USA leader to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, the world's worst human rights violator.

The UK, along with China, Germany, France, Russia and the European Union are negotiating with Iran on preserving the deal.
