On Monday, the United States restored sanctions that target Iran'soil exports, as well its banking and transport sectors.
In Moscow's first official reaction since the restoration of Washington's bans on Tehran, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday that the U.S. sanctions are "not legitimate".

Lavrov emphasized that Russian Federation and its European partners were looking for ways to maintain economic ties with Iran.

The bans had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Big power disunity and European Union moves to circumvent Trump's sanctions regime have given Tehran a psychological boost - but not dissuaded foreign businesses ranging from oil majors to trading houses and shipping concerns from pulling out of Iran for fear of incurring new U.S. penalties.

Speaking on background Tuesday, a U.S. State Department spokesperson said that Secretary Mike Pompeo had approved carving an exception from sanctions for Iran's Chabahar port. We have so many countries that are on our side. We are yet to know what are the serious concessions conceded by the Indian government.
The exemption for Chabahar is linked to the port's importance for both India and Afghanistan, and likewise the importance of India and Afghanistan to US foreign policy aims. Shortly after that the White House announced they would re-impose unilateral sanctions against the Islamic Republic. We will bypass sanctions. In May 2018, however, Trump withdrew the United States from the agreement, making a return of sanctions all-but-inevitable.
