US Special Representative for #Iran Brian Hook:
Iranian tankers are now a floating liability after new U.S. sanctions. Self-insured oil tankers are prone to accidents.
US Special Representative for #Iran Brian Hook:
International insurers will no longer be insuring Iranian tankers.
There is high risks in purchasing oil from Iran. Entities allowing Iran's tankers dock at their ports may be facilitating Iran's malign activities.
US Special Representative for #Iran Brian Hook:
Iranian tankers are turning off their signal transmitters, violating international law & posing grave risks and dangers. Up to a dozen Iranian tankers have turned off their transponders. Iran is trying to evade tankers.
US Special Representative for #Iran Brian Hook:
This tactic increases risks of accidents & injuries. Self-insured Iranian tankers are a threat. International porters should redouble their thinking of allowing Iranian ships in their docks.
US Special Representative for #Iran Brian Hook:
Import volumes are confidential. All countries need to show significant reductions. Our to path to zero Iran's exports continues. I ran has lost 1 million bpd & we have brought down oil prices.
US Special Representative for #Iran Brian Hook:
The Obama administration provided 20 SREs. We have only provided 8. We are very serious about Iran not having funding for its malign activities.
The sank Sanchi ship has financial life cycle & we will not allow Tehran receive money.
US Special Representative for #Iran Brian Hook:
Iraq received a waiver to pay for its electricity shortages in the south.
Our goal is to zero Iran's exports. In 2019 we will be in a better position to have all countries zero imports from Iran.
US Special Representative for #Iran Brian Hook:
Iran exports has decreased by 1 million bpd. Oil producers, including the US, have increased our exports & the price of oil has not increased. We do want to achieve maximum pressure without increasing the price of oil.
US Special Representative for #Iran Brian Hook:
Two countries have already stopped importing oil from Iran. A vast majority of refiners have stopped importing Iran's oil. The world knows the President & Secretary of State are very serious about maximum pressure.
US Special Representative for #Iran Brian Hook:
Iran will not get revenue from their oil. The Treasury Dept. monitors these escrow accounts so Iran doesn't use them for malign purposes.
Special Rep. Hook:
Doing business with #Iran’s shipping sector is risky. If Iranian tankers make calls to your ports or transit through your waterways, this comes at great risk…Protect your port, protect your business, and promote maritime safety.
