  • Iran to allow private sector to export oil, beat US sanctions

Buyers of Iranian crude oil have been hoping for relief from USA sanctions in order to have more time to reduce purchases.

Iran and Saudi Arabia broke off diplomatic relations in 2016 and are locked in several proxy wars in the Middle East, including in Yemen.

The US government says a move to reimpose sanctions on Iran remains on track.

Some 50 worldwide companies had announced their intention to leave the Iranian market, particularly in energy and financial sectors, as the United States moved to reimpose the sanctions against Iran, Hook said.

Brent for September settlement advanced $1.05 to $78.35 a barrel on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange.

Trump told King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud that the oil market could need more supply when the men spoke on Friday, the White House said. West Texas Intermediate, the US benchmark for the price of oil, was up 1.51 percent to $75.06 per barrel, its highest level since November 2014.

So, how much support can Trump garner for his economic assault against Iran?

Iran will apply various methods to thwart the US sanctions, Jahangiri said during a meeting of the resistance economy headquarters.

"OPEC is manipulating, and you know they allowed (a production increase) less than we thought last week".

The 9.1 trillion 2018 budget was predicated on a benchmark price of $51 per barrel and production of 2.3 million barrels per day.

The fall came as the Russian Energy Ministry said on Monday that the country's oil output increased to 11.06 million barrels per day in June from 10.97 million barrels per day in May.

Trump was referring to OPEC's decision to raise output together with its non-OPEC allies by around 1 million barrels per day, although since then Saudi Arabia has pledged to raise production to a new record.

Trump will visit Europe this month for a meeting with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, whom he has criticized sharply as paying too little for their joint defense.

Mr Trump took another swing at his European allies saying they dealt unfairly with the U.S. over trade.

Trade tensions are likely to overshadow that trip. "We want to work with these countries to build a strong global effort", he said.
