In this study, we use game theory to analyze the current situation of Iran and the United States as a result of the US withdrawal from the Comprehensive Plan of Action and the imposition of finanancial and oil sanctions on Iran and Iran's resilience to these sanctions. We also present an oil strategy, as a credible threat, that helps Iran to get out of the sanctions.
