US sanctions can trigger popular uprising in Iran: experts


The second batch of US sanctions against Iran will aggravate the economic crisis and may trigger a popular uprising, experts specialized in Iranian affairs said.

The fate of the Iranian regime is linked to avoiding the economic crisis, which will be exacerbated by the second batch of the sanctions, said Mohamed El-Said Idris, head of the Arab and regional studies unit at the Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies.

The second batch of the US sanctions on Iran could lead to a popular revolution, but this may take years, said Mohammad Abbas Naji, Chief Editor of the center's Mukhtarat Iraneya (Iranian Anthology) periodical, said.

The United States will impose a second batch of sanctions on Iran on Monday, including oil industry and exports, after US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the nuclear agreement with Iran in May.

Idris added that if the Iranian regime will fall if it couldn't solve the problems caused by the US sanctions.
