Iran has made $44.7 billion in illegal oil sales since US President Joe Biden assumed office, selling its oil mainly to dictatorships like China, Syria and Venezuela, watchdog group United Against a Nuclear Iran (UANI) said in a report. Iran’s illegal selling of sanctioned oil has skyrocketed under the Biden presidency. From January 2021 until June 2022, Iran sold $44.7 billion mostly to China, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Tehran’s energy exports "totaled $39 billion, compared [with] $22 billion for the previous year – a rise of 77 percent and an extra $17 billion," said UANI, which monitors Iran’s fleet of illegal oil tankers.
