The United States on Thursday imposed sanctions on over a dozen companies based in China, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates that Washington accused of facilitating the sale of Iranian petrochemicals and petroleum products to buyers in East Asia.

The latest U.S. move against Iranian oil smuggling comes as efforts to revive Iran's 2015 nuclear deal have stalled and ties between the Islamic Republic and the West are increasingly strained as Iranians keep up anti-government protests.

The U.S. Treasury Department in a statement said the 13 companies designated on Thursday facilitated the sales of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of Iranian petrochemicals and petroleum products to buyers in East Asia on behalf of companies under U.S. sanctions, including the National Iranian Oil Company and Triliance Petrochemical Co. Ltd.

"The United States will continue to implement sanctions against those actors facilitating these sales." Among those designated were United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong-based companies the Treasury accused of being tied to Triliance Petrochemical Co. Ltd., the latest action targeting what Washington says is the Hong-based firm's evasion of U.S. sanctions.

Every US sanction against foreign companies will weaken the dollar. More and more countries will adopt digital currencies to circumvent the militarized dollar. There is not a country in the world that has not been sanctioned by the USA. The USA is empowered by God’s complex.

As usual, US says all the nice things in g19 to china (but really to non-China countries), then turns around n stab china in the back. POTUS SecBlinken are liars just like zelensky.

I love it!!! F U C C P

USA government Is stupid. It is no use sanctioning some of the Chinese firms considering all of the firms are under 100% control of CCP government and they can easily change a name to escape the sanctions.

China has the US pissing its pants. Lol. Lmao.

U.S. says Iran likely responsible for drone attack on tankerThe United States on Wednesday said an attack on the commercial tanker MV Pacific Zircon off the coast of Oman was most likely conducted by Iran with a drone. It was LAfwerki actually. I have footage I'd say this was crappy reporting but Jake Sullivan's press release had no more than this. Had to go to the Jerusalem Post to see: who owned the tanker, when it was hit, damage to the tanker, any injuries/fatalities. “Minor damage “
