The United States two days before announced it will no longer grant sanctions exemptions to Iran’s oil customers and will start imposing sanctions on countries such as India, China and Turkey if they buy Iranian oil.

The Iranian parliament has approved a law that will permit the creation of a virtual embassy in Jerusalem as part of measures to counter Israel.

According to the state-run Mehr news agency, the parliament approved the motions, which are aimed at countering Israeli aggression against Palestine.

Among the proposals, parliament signed off on the creation of a virtual embassy to Palestine, which will be based in the city of Jerusalem.

Iran will also provide greater support to the Palestinian people, forbid those associated with Israeli companies, groups, and non-governmental organisations from participating at domestic and international expos, and prohibit the use of Israeli software in Iran.

All Iranian nationals will also be banned from traveling to the “occupied lands of Palestine,” as quoted by the agency.

The motions follow in the wake of U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to Israel this past week.

Pompeo met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Vice Prime Minister Benny Gantz to discuss Iran’s so-called destabilising behaviour in the Middle East.
