VideoCast: US Oil Sanctions and Iran’s Response — Al Jazeera’s Inside Story

Protesters in Tehran, Iran, June 25, 2018

I joined Al Jazeera English’s Inside Story on Monday for a 25-minute examination of the Trump Administration’s oil sanctions on Iran and Tehran’s response as it faces economic crisis.

The other panelists are Anjli Raval of the Financial Times and Mohammad Marandi of the University of Tehran.

What you have just heard is an economic mish-mash of “All is OK”, which is the line of the Supreme Leader, “Trust in the Resistance Economy”.

The Iranian people are caught between the Trump Administration’s pursuit of regime change and the Islamic Republic’s hardliners.
