Japan's Biggest Oil Firm Considers to Resume Iranian Oil Imports - Spokeswoman

New U.S. Sanctions Against Iran Go Into Effect

Jameel Ahmad, head of market research at futures brokerage FXTM said the "sanctions on Iran have been. priced into the oil markets a long time ago", and that he would "instead focus more heavily on the global demand outlook because of the ongoing external uncertainties weighing down on economic prospects".

"If you notice, oil prices are going down very substantially, despite the fact that already half of their capacity is gone".

And, they say, the agreement was the best way to slow Iran's nuclear development.

"This has nothing to do with Iran".

Alamolhoda, an influential figure on the government's Assembly of Experts, told his followers that Iran would launch a missile attack against "all Persian Gulf countries" in the event its oil markets are curtailed. That should have driven oil prices up due to concerns over lack of supply.

President Donald Trump's administration added 300 new designations including Iran's oil, shipping, insurance and banking sectors, aiming to cripple Iran's main export revenues from the petroleum industry.

Brent crude was $73.51 a barrel, up 0.68 cent from Monday's closing price, or 0.93 percent higher. Sanctions the Obama administration imposed in 2010 included the Central Bank, effectively cutting off Iran from any US cash dealings, and the resulting pressure helped bring Iran to the talks that led to the Iran deal.

Lion Air crash: On ill-fated plane's previous flight, pilot made distress call
A witness in the Karawang district said he had heard an explosion from the beach around the time the aircraft went down. The pilot on the earlier flight requested permission to turn back after take-off because of technical problems.

He said the United States policy is to levy "maximum economic pressure" on the country. In fact, Iran's oil exports may go up and not down this month, according to RT's Boom Bust. "Now we can not say when and in what form the imports will be resumed, but we aim to resume them and are currently considering this issue", the spokeswoman Michiko Ono said.

Rohani also vowed that Iran will "proudly bypass" USA sanctions to sell oil.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani speaks at a news conference on the sidelines of the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly at UN headquarters in New York, US, Sept. 26, 2018.

The list includes 50 Iranian banks, 200 individuals and shipping vessels tied to Iran's shipping and energy sector, as well as the national airline, Iran Air, and more than 65 of its aircraft.

"US bullying is backfiring". Exempted countries are top Iranian oil importers China, India, South Korea, Turkey, Italy, United Arab Emirates and Japan, as well as occasional oil customer Taiwan. "We have to stand to win". "They wanted to take over the whole Middle East".

The US sanctions herald the end of Washington's involvement in the landmark 2015 deal signed between Iran, the US and other world powers, which was created to curb Iran's nuclear ambitions.
