US announces new sanctions targeting Omani ‘broker’

Read Time:1 Minute, 20 Second

Announced on Friday that talks to bring around the nuclear deal among Iran and world powers have delayed with a new government led by conservative President Ibrahim Raisi who got into office in Tehran in this past month. The United States forced agreements on an Omani businessman and corporations connected with him over claims of participation in an oil-smuggling system that backs Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC-QF).

The sanctions directed Mahmood Rashid Amur Al Habsi, called by the US Department of the Reserves as a “foreign broker” and suspect of joining with elder Quds Force executives to “facilitate shipments of Iranian oil to foreign customers, including buyers in East Asia”. Director of the Office of Foreign Assets Control at the Treasury, Andrea M Gacki, said in a statement. “The IRGC-QF is using revenues from its Iranian petroleum sales to fund its malign activities at the expense of the Iranian people,”. In support of this “These sales rely on key foreign intermediaries to obscure the IRGC-QF’s involvement, and Treasury will continue to disrupt and expose anyone supporting these efforts.” The US Department of State resonated with Gacki’s announcement, receiving the sanctions on Friday.

US sanctions directing towards Iran are rare from the time President Joe Biden took office in January. The US administration states they are looking for a return to the 2015 multilateral nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). This may be a step towards a Nuclear Powered Iran indicating balance of power may soon shift in Middle East.
