Rising tensions between the U.S. and Iran

The United States announced earlier this week its decision to end temporary waivers vis-à-vis oil purchases from Iran, which were granted to eight countries and jurisdictions that relied heavily on Iranian oil supply, for the purpose of a "transition period", would expire on the second of May. The measure aims to decrease Iran's oil exports to zero - in line with the Trump Administration's declared goal of "depriving the (Ayatollah) regime of the funds it has used to de-stabilize the Middle East."
