NHK highlighted press remarks on Tuesday by U.S. Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook, who reportedly urged Japan and other nations to stop importing Iranian oil. He reportedly said that as three of the eight parties that were granted waivers by the U.S. to import petroleum from Iran have now completely halted imports, Tehran has lost $10 billion in revenue since last May. The senior DOS official stressed that these waivers will not be extended beyond May 2 by saying: “The United States does not plan to allow any exceptions in its campaign of maximum economic pressure on Iran.”
