Rubio Praises Administration’s Decision to End Waivers for Iranian Oil Sanctions

Apr 22, 2019 | Press Releases

Miami, FL – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement on the Trump administration’s announcement that all countries will have to end their imports of Iranian oil or be subject to sanctions under U.S. law:
“The Trump administration’s decision today to stop issuing waivers for sanctions against nations importing Iranian crude oil is long overdue. I’ve long supported ensuring the United States imposes maximum pressure against the regime in Tehran, including by ending all sanctions waivers to foreign countries buying Iranian crude oil and other petroleum products due to Iran’s escalating support for international terrorism and its systemic and egregious abuses of human rights. The administration should now also end sanctions waivers for foreign countries engaged in civil nuclear cooperation with Iran, especially after revelations that the Iranian regime cheated on the nuclear deal by maintaining a secret ‘Atomic Archive’ for building a nuclear weapon on short notice.”
