This is seven percent more than the figure for January-February 2017, according to the statistics released by the United States Census Bureau.

Exports from the US to Iran amounted to $20.4 million in the two-month period, which is 67.2 percent higher year-on-year.

Meanwhile Iran's exports to the US fell by 47.4 percent to $ 7.1 million in the same time span, the report further announced.

In February 2018, Iran-US trade was worth $14 million, of which US exports to Iran stood at $11.6 million.

During 2016, the US exported goods valued at $172 million to Iran which mostly included agriculture products and medical equipment importing commodities, mostly pistachios and carpets, worth $87.7 million from Iran.

The removal of international sanctions against Tehran in 2016 only contributed to Iran's imports from the US, ‎which experienced a 700-percent rise year-on-year, while the overall trade stood at $260 million, which is 11 percent less than the figure for the preceding ‎year.‎
