The Trump administration is "continuously evaluating" the waivers on sanctions against Iran, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Newsmax TV on Thursday.

"The sanctions and waivers are for six months," Pompeo told Newsmax TV host John Bachman in an exclusive interview at the State Department. "We are continuously evaluating whether they make sense, given our policy.

"We still want to make sure we've got a well-supplied crude oil market — but, at the same time, we want to ensure that we're complying with the requirements."

The United States slapped sanctions back on Tehran in November — though allowing China, India, and other countries to keep buying crude — as President Donald Trump moves to quash Iran's nuclear ambitions and ballistic missile program, as well as its support for militant groups throughout the Middle East.

"The sanctions on Iran have this ultimate goal: creating an outcome where the Iranian people can have better lives than they have today under this tyrannical regime," Pompeo said.
