Iran vice president says private sector to buy, export oil

Trump: US will 'absolutely' sanction European companies that do business with Iran | TheHill

The official warned countries including China and India, who are key buyers of Iranian oil, that they should stop purchasing crude from the country before the November deadline or face USA sanctions.

Iran has said it will fight back against United States efforts to squeeze Iranian oil exports, accusing countries that fill the gap in oil markets of "a big treachery to the Iranian nation and the world community", according to Iran's First Vice President Eshagh Jahangiri.

Brian Hook, the State Department director of policy planning, said on Monday that he and the Treasury under secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, Sigal Mandelker, would be leaving for the Gulf region "in the coming days", accompanied senior officials, to co-ordinate efforts on Iran.

The United States will sanction any European companies found doing business with Iran, Donald Trump said during an interview aired on Sunday.

After the U.S. withdrew from the Iranian nuclear deal in May, it said it would reimpose economic sanctions against Tehran by November.

Trump was not specific on whether the additional 2 million barrels was a per-day figure - but worldwide daily demand is nearing 100 million bpd.

Now, Washington is stepping up pressure on all countries, including India and China, to completely stop buying oil from Iran by November 4.

ICE had no official comment, but Buch said the idea would be similar to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DEA under the U.S. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old NY progressive who pulled off a stunning upset primary victory over high-ranking Rep.

Hook said that the first part of USA sanctions against Iran will snap back on August 6.

"He has agreed!", though statements from Saudi media have made no mention of an agreement to raise Saudi oil production.

"We have been clear with countries and companies around the world that we are bringing severe economic pressure on Iran until the regime changes its destabilizing policies", he added.

Oil prices rose strongly last week, with the United States crude contract hitting its highest in 3-1/2 years at $74.46.

"We are not looking to grant licences or waivers in the Iranian market ... but we are prepared to work with countries who are reducing imports", he said. The Saudis have not confirmed if that's the case.

The State Department has insisted on multiple occasions that Giuliani does not speak on behalf of the administration on foreign policy issues. On Monday, Hook expressed confidence that the USA sanctions policy would not prompt mass shortages, but analysts have expressed doubt that Saudi Arabia can increase production by as much as Trump described.
