Iran Sanctions

    FILE – In this April 8, 2019, file photo, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo speaks at a news conference to
    announce the Trump administration’s plan to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a "foreign
    terrorist organization," at the U.S. State Department in Washington. The Trump administration is
    poised to tell five nations, including allies Japan, South Korea and Turkey, that they will no longer be
    exempt from U.S. sanctions if they continue to import oil from Iran. U.S. officials say Pompeo plans to
    announce on Monday, April 22, that the administration will not renew sanctions waivers for the five
    countries when they expire on May 2.
