Iran Regime’s VP: “Sharp Drop in Oil Revenue.” What Does This Mean for the Mullahs?

Iran: Sharp drop in oil revenue

Eshagh Jahangiri, the Iranian regime’s vice president, acknowledged that there has been a sharp drop in the regime’s oil revenues due to United States sanctionswith the revenue at around $8 billion last year

But our total oil revenue in last year was around $8 billion. This decrease of revenue has had an impact on all parts, including the government’s budget.”
