Higher oil a mixed bag for Canada

Higher oil a mixed bag for Canada

Novikov's comments came soon after President Donald Trump announced that the United States was pulling out of the deal and promised to sign a memorandum to reinstate "the highest level of economic sanctions" on the Islamic Republic and on any country that helps Iran on its nuclear weapons program. But the truth is that companies that have large interests in the United States are going to be deterred by the latest USA action from doing business also with Iran.

Nimrod Barkan, Israel's ambassador to Canada, said Trump's decision actually gives Western countries the leverage they were lacking to curb Iran's development of long-range missiles and its deployment of fighters to Syria that continue to threaten Israel. "And hopefully, that won't be the case".

"In a few moments, I will sign a presidential memorandum to begin reinstating USA nuclear sanctions on the Iranian regime", Trump said during Tuesday's announcement.

Immediately on returning from North Korea on Thursday, secretary of state Mike Pompeo will embark on talks with allies in Europe, the Middle East and Asia to try to persuade them to press Iran to curb its nuclear and missile programs, U.S. officials said.

The major European countries, China and Russian Federation are all continuing to express their support for the agreement following Trump's decision to end U.S participation and restore sanctions against Iran.

"We regret the decision by the United States to pull out, but we are still hopeful we are going to be able to keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons". I would advise Iran not to start their nuclear program.

"The inspections are under way, and if they move things, they leave behind a very, very important mark called isotopes", he said. We know that the plan's diplomatic approach slowed Iran's nuclear program, although it may not have stopped it completely. The threat of war was receding, and the sanctions that had stifled Iran's economy were soon to be lifted.

Cayetano said there is an urgent need to rescue all distressed OFWs in Kuwait due to incidents of serious abuses and threats.

On Tuesday, Trump fulfilled a campaign by declaring that the U.S.is leaving the deal.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures rose 2.6 per cent, or $1.79 to $70.85 USA a barrel.

In a burst of last-minute diplomacy, punctuated by a visit by Britain's top diplomat, the deal's European members had given ground on many of Trump's demands for reworking the accord, according to officials, diplomats and others briefed on the negotiations.

Iran has also said it would try to salvage the agreement, but would restart uranium enrichment if it could not. "The Iran deal states that 'under no circumstances will Iran ever seek, develop or acquire any nuclear weapons.' Why would the President blow up this deal and free Iran of that obligation?"

In a joint statement issued by the leaders of the U.K., France, and Germany, Theresa May, Emmanuel Macron, and Angela Merkel decried Trump's unilateral upheaval of a deal that they said is still being honored by its other signatories. They might, for example, consider a blocking regulation which seeks to block US action against European companies. The most immediate impact will be a return of United States sanctions in Iran.

Kuwaiti oil minister Bakhit al-Rashidi said his country will work with OPEC and non-OPEC oil producers to limit impact of any possible shortage in supplies, state news agency KUNA reported.
