3:50 pm
which in previous rounds of sanctions was the gateway to the world for a rainy and trade. this. has become a lot harder than before it was always difficult but now much more so the ships used to take 2 hours to reach the port in dubai but now it is the take from 2 days to a whole week to get to the ports you have to wait for the inspection to be completed the officials from dubai have become much stricter. faded. fewer goods being allowed into the country is a massive problem for rainy and tighter supplies lead to higher prices inflation is running high. iranians have to take any job they can just to get by. you know what i'm a university graduate. without sanctions the job market would be so much
