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 fi nancial 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.
