The US Is in Violation of the Iran Deal

"The Europeans should not have to pay for the withdrawal from an agreement by the United States, to which they had themselves contributed".

"I would say Russian Federation will benefit most from a withdrawal from Iran by European and other global companies".

The news agency Bloomberg, citing Amrita Sen, chief oil analyst at Energy Aspects Ltd., noted that the renewal of Iranian sanctions can drastically change the agenda for the upcoming OPEC meeting in June.

Boeing has yet to deliver any aircraft to Iran under those deals and said that it will "continue to follow the US government's lead". In a press briefing on Tuesday, former U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro told reporters he believed Trump's decision was "a major mistake" and a "reckless and ill-advised decision".

US President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal has many implications, both economic and political. On 8 May President Donald Trump denounced the deal, saying he would withdraw the United States from it. This political move may trigger a nuclear arms race in the Middle East of Iran decides to restart its uranium enrichment programme.

He has said that Iran "will not accept any restrictions beyond its commitments" to comply with worldwide rules in the years ahead.

The same source went on to add that Saudi Arabia will not fill the gap on its own, but is working on possible solutions with the United Arab Emirates (the UAE is the current holder of the OPEC presidency for 2018) and Russian Federation (as a party to the agreement between OPEC and non-OPEC oil producers). Unless the European signatories to the deal and the US Congress addressed his concerns, he plans to withdraw on the next deadline for waiving sanctions.

But we still don't know how the other nations in the Iran deal will respond - new USA sanctions might not scare off countries like Russian Federation and China from buying Iranian oil.

When sanctions against Iran were waived in early 2016, NITC was celebrating its 60th anniversary and was the sixth-largest tanker owner in the world.

There is some chatter in the markets suggesting Kuwait and Iraq as two producers with the best ability to raise output quickly in response to any fall in Iranian exports.

"A large part of the price slide, which saw [Brent] plunge from over $100 to below $30 a barrel as a result of the price war between OPEC and the US shale oil industry that began in autumn 2014, has now been reversed", the analysts wrote in a note. That country's rulers are attempting to convince the leaders of Britain, Germany and France, also parties to the 2015 deal, to shun new sanctions. He added that condensate, a super-light form of crude oil that was excluded in the last round of sanctions, may well be included.

In 2014, Saudi Arabia was willing to see oil prices tumble during a supply glut partly, diplomats said, because cheaper oil cut the income of arch-rival Iran, limiting Tehran's capacity to finance proxy wars against Saudi interests in the region. However, European leaders did not really do much to salvage the deal beyond trying to coax Trump into remaining in it, or - worse yet from an Iranian point of view - appeasing Washington at Tehran's expense. Our model suggests that roughly 25% of Iranian oil exports will be curtailed over the course of a year, but far less over the next 180 days, which is the window provided by the US Treasury to comply with the sanctions.
