Sanctions will remain inefficient as long as Iranian backdoors are open
December 11, 2018
Almost since its establishment, the Islamic Republic of Iran has been under a permanently sanctioned regime.
In different periods, the sanctions were softened but never lifted. A new package of tough sanctions, this time American, reached Iran on November 5 of this year.
However, despite the sanctions that Iran has been under for almost 40 years, the Iranian regime still finds power and leverages to spread its influence in the Middle East. It is possible partly due to the network of backdoors, from China to South America, created for different purposes for over decades.
It is notable that both the EU and the US have information about these backdoors, but they have not been able to close all of them yet.
