National Security Adviser John Bolton has explained that the push that is part of the White House’s effort “to bring Iran’s oil exports to zero” is a way of ratcheting up economic pressure on Iran. Last month, the Trump administration kicked its “maximum pressure” campaign into high gear by announcing that it would not expend waivers to countries like China, India, and Japan and allow them to continue buying Iranian oil. Instead, they will face the prospect of being excluded from the American market.

During the Iran-Iraq war in the eighties, the Iranian regime recruited a large number of child soldiers. Many of their parents were not even aware that their children had been recruited until it was too late.

Iran signed the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child two and a half decades ago, but it clearly means nothing to the Iranian regime because it still continues to recruit child soldiers.

Google removed two Iranian Regime-created apps, designed to trick users into thinking that their messaging was encrypted, from its Play Store on April 25.

The apps, Talagram (Persian for Golden Gram or Telegram Gold) and Hotgram, were developed by the Regime after they blocked the Telegram messenger app and forced Iranians to look for alternative private messaging platforms. The Regime developed ones allowed the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) to spy on user’s private messages and filters opposition channels to prevent many Iranians from viewing them.

American analyst Michael Pregent discussed Iran’s offer of a prisoner exchange with Western countries this week. He believes this is one of many indicators that Iran is starting to feel real pressure from the US sanctions on the Islamic Republic and its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). In an interview on the weekly segment of The Washington Perspective he said, "Now we aren't going to give you 23 prisoners for two prisoners.” Pregent strongly supports US President Trump's pressure policy towards Iran.

Peugeot maker PSA Group has reported a 1.1% decline in revenue during the first-quarter of 2019, largely due to US sanctions on Iran.

The French carmaker announced that its revenue dropped from €18.2 billion in the January-March 2018 period to just €17.98 billion this year, due to declining sales outside Europe and currency challenges. This announcement caused shares to fall.
