US agrees to give oil waivers to India, 7 other nations under Iran sanctions

The US has agreed to let eight countries — including Japan, India and South Korea — keep buying Iranian oil + after it reimposes sanctions on the OPEC producer on November 5, a senior administration official said.

While the Trump administration’s goal remains to choke off revenue to Iran’s economy, waivers are being granted in exchange for continued import cuts so as not to drive up oil prices, said the official, who asked not to be identified before secretary of state Michael Pompeo announces the number of exemptions later on Friday.

China — the leading importer of Iranian oil — is still in discussions with the US on terms, but is among the eight, according to two people familiar with the discussions who also asked not to be identified. The other four countries that will get waivers weren’t identified.
