This is embarrassing for both Japan (spineless) and tbe US (arrogant bully).

. Iran became a big petrol industrial country thanks Japan's machinery and technology decades ago where it was implemented the framework of many plants there.

Japan never played a role with implementing oil related technology into Iran. Where did you get this information?

Now, China and South Korea replace of that Japan's completely withdrawal from Iran.

South Korea can be pressured as well.

Find another way to replace Iran will cost much more than expected to Japanese oil companies, and who will be sacrificed to pay more fuel cost?

The enough oil available on the market and the Americans could supply them as well.

How long Japan is determined to MUST obey USA sanctions...

As long as they are depending military of the .....

C'mon, Abe, be(-come) a man and make your own decisions!

As an European you should know better, no that smart :)

"Japan has been seeking a waiver that would allow it to continue importing Iranian oil, but it appears unlikely to win one,"

Japan's been trying to play both sides on this for more than a year, and I'm glad to see the sad attempt halted. Of course, I'd rather see Abe grow a spine instead of nipping at Trump's heels, but you can't have the oil and avoid the sanctions, sorry.

Trump's sanctions on Iran are simply another hissy fit to spite Obama's deal. Now, thanks to spineless Abe, everyone in Japan will be paying the price, in an already stagnant economy. Unbelievable.

We could learn from North Korea. Do a transfer between oil carries in the middle of the sea where nobody can see you.

Why the hell should the U.S. be able to dictate trade decisions for other sovereign nations? As if the U.S. has not already caused enough problems around the globe...

The master demands (orders?) and the "subordinate" follows the orders.

What a joke (not).

If this is followed through expect the fuel prices to sky-rocket.

C'mon, Abe, be(-come) a man and make your own decisions!

Japan is losing a lot in those sanctions which USA is leading up. Iran became a big petrol industrial country thanks Japan's machinery and technology decades ago where it was implemented the framework of many plants there. Now, China and South Korea replace of that Japan's completely withdrawal from Iran. Find another way to replace Iran will cost much more than expected to Japanese oil companies, and who will be sacrificed to pay more fuel cost?
