Iran Regime’s Presidents Admits to Dire Economic Situation

Iran regime’s President Hassan Rouhani says regime’s economic situation has never been as “difficult and complicated” as it is today. Rouhani admitted that U.S. sanctions on Iran’s oil exports are making it difficult to run the affairs of the country.
The remarks are in sharp contrast to Rouhani’s previous statements in which he portrayed a promising picture of the country’s economy. In recent months, he and his senior officials have repeatedly said that the country’s economy was growing, the inflation rate was on a declining curve and non-oil exports were making up for lost oil sales.

Singapore Threatens to Auction off Chinese Tanker Violating Iran Sanctions

A court in Singapore has given the owner of a tanker carrying Iranian regime’s liquid gas a week to either come forward or it would place the vessel under the hammer.
In July, Singapore port authorities had seized two oil tankers owned by the Chinese Kunlun Shipping Company carrying Iranian petroleum products.
The two ships were registered under the names “Gas Infinity”, recently renamed as Echo Star and Gas Dragon renamed as Nexo.
Echo Star which used to carry Iranian LPG since last July to China, has been sanctioned by Washington, but continued its operation by using deceptive techniques to cover the origin of cargoes she was delivering – by turning off her AIS transponder while loading from Iranian terminals and receiving Iranian-sourced cargo via ship-to-ship (STS) transfers at Malacca Strait.
The vessel released last July reappeared in mid-October in Singapore ports.
