US exhorts China it will enforce sanctions on Iranian oil shipments

The US has told China it will enforce Trump-era sanctions against Iranian oil sales, as shipments from Tehran to Beijing surge.

A senior Biden administration official told the Financial Times on Tuesday that Iranian oil exports to China had been increasing “for some time now”.

“We’ve told the Chinese that we will continue to enforce our sanctions,” the senior administration official told the newspaper. “There will be no tacit green light.”
