Iran: the real cost of sanctions

29 Jul

Al Jazeera English has some of the best debates about what is going on inside and outside of Iran.

Here is an interesting debate about the cost of sanctions to Iran, which is increasing every day.

According to the head of the commission of imports for Iran’s Chamber of Commerce, Iran has halted imports because:

over the past 25 days, no hard currency had been allocated for imports because of a dispute between the Central Bank and the Commerce Ministry.

As I wrote last year, I believe that sanctions will force Khamenei to compromise. I still believe that.

This particular debate on AL Jazeera was taped 3 days before the June 14 elections. It offers a range of views and is worth watching.
