UAE companies continue to ship fuel to Iran despite sanctions

WASHINGTON — The United States has determined that the United Arab Emirates remains a fuel supplier to Iran.


A government report said at least three UAE companies were believed to be still selling gasoline and other fuel to Iran.

The report by the Congressional Research Service said the companies have been trading with Iran despite Western and United Nations sanctions on Teheran.

CRS, in a report titled "Iran Sanctions," identified the Emirates National Oil Co. as a fuel supplier to Iran. The report said two other companies, Golden Crown and Royal Oyster Group, "may still be selling gasoline to Iran."

"Another UAE firm, Dragon Oil, has note renewed a deal with Iran, which expired in July 2010, to swap oil with Iran via Turkmentistan," the report said.


Who cares? When the U.N. adopts a true democratic system, perhaps, the ordinary peoples of the world would see sanctions against Iran as legitimate. Time to ignore the wishes of Imperialist powers on the Security Council.

So, what? It is not anybody else's business what UAE sells to Iran. The U.S. is not the ruler of the world and has no business telling other countries what they can or cannot do.
