Geneva Accord Lets Consumers Buy Iran Oil At Current Levels

The US State Department extended six-month Iran sanctions waivers on Friday to China, India, South Korea and other countries in exchange for their reducing purchases of Iranian crude oil earlier this year. The waivers had been expected. Under a law governing sanctions imposed on Iran’s disputed nuclear program by the United States, the State Department is required to determine whether the Islamic Republic’s oil consumers have reduced their purchases. The decision comes even after the United States and five other global powers, known as the P5+1, agreed in Geneva this month to ease Iran’s access to about $4.2 billion in foreign currency reserves for six months in exchange for Tehran’s taking steps to curb its nuclear program.

At least we got them to talk and to reduce their enrichment level, and Ahmadinejad is out of there - but we need to watch them closely and really be prepared to clamp back down on them if they renege. If they don't see the light, make 'em feel the heat.

Idiots! The whole idea was intended to make reductions happen. If that wasn't 'broken' then why are they 'fixing' it?

The sanctions waivers have been granted because countries have stopped or reduced purchases of Iranian crude. Some people commenting here need to read the article and not just the headline.

Waiver is just a euphemism for an agreement not to enforce existing laws.

Amen.
