A US ship reportedly unloading 10,000 tonnes of rice in the Iranian port of Chabahar has become a lightning rod for criticism in a country which is seeking to curb imports of American goods.
“This move contravenes the law banning imports of American consumer goods and also contradicts a directive by Industry Minister (Mohammad Reza Nematzadeh),” the source said.
Nematzadeh sent the directive to his deputies in November, ordering a blockade on imports of consumer goods from the United States to go into effect.
The order was in line with a letter by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei to President Hassan Rouhani, urging the government to develop an “economy of resistance” and check imports of US-made goods.
Earlier this month, the Trade Promotion Organization of Iran published the names of 227 US-made goods subject to an import ban and sent the list to authorities in all the 31 provinces across the country to implement it.
Iran also had a ban in place on imports of rice in order to protect domestic farmers but officials have said the country needed to make new purchases to adjust the market.
