In November, the United States will put into effect sanctions that will prevent Iran from exporting oil. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the U.S. will consider requests from some countries to be exempted from these sanctions. “There will be a handful of countries that come to the United States and ask for relief from that. We’ll consider it,” Pompeo said according to an interview in Abu Dhabi with Sky News Arabia released by the U.S. State Department. He did not name any specific countries.
