Trump has put America in the worst of all possible worlds overseas

Brent crude futures the international benchmark for oil prices hit their strongest since November 2014 above $77.80 per barrel at 9.51am on Thursday

Part of the flaw with the Iran deal that President Donald Trump rejected was it enticed Europe and the US into economic relations with Iran that would work against holding the country accountable for violations of the agreement, Bolton said. You can count on Russian Federation and China to push back if the U.S. blackballs their companies for trading with Iran, but will the British, French and German Governments also do so?

US light crude was down 10 cents at $71.26, having touched a 3-1/2 year high of $71.89 on Thursday.

Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif described his government's reaction to President Trump's decision on Tuesday to re-impose US sanctions on foreign companies that do business with Iran, in a statement posted to Twitter on Friday.

Germany and France said they would seek to shield European companies from US sanctions, which would prohibit companies that do business in Iran from using the USA financial system.

LONDON, May 11 (Reuters) - Oil prices steadied near 3-1/2 year highs on Friday as the prospect of new US sanctions on Iran tightened the outlook for Middle East supply at a time when global crude production is only just keeping pace with rising demand.

"The countries that continue to deal with Iran could face sanctions".

Tzuriel was in Ottawa one day after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's televised multimedia presentation trumpeted Iranian documents obtained by Israeli's intelligence agency, Mossad, that he said show Iran lied about pursuing nuclear weapons before signing the 2015 deal. According to Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot, "Right now, the agreement, with all its faults, is working and is putting off realization of the Iranian nuclear vision by 10 to 15 years." Maj. "The inspectors say nothing", she said. "The circumstances I'm in now is that I'm the national security adviser to the President". No regime loyalists would dare say it, especially to an American reporter, but Iranians are furious with their own government's failure to deliver basics like electricity, water and decent wages. We all share the common objective of making sure that Iran never gets nuclear weapons, are anxious about their terribly destabilising and threatening military behaviour across the region and their ballistic missile program.

"That just violates every precept of sound arms control negotiation", he added. What this means is that the U.S under Trump can withdraw from other agreements.

"There's a lot we can do to, and we should do it", said Bolton, who at the time was with the American Enterprise Institute think tank. "It's a recognition of reality". "And then in six months, basically if they hadn't done that, then you would be in a much stronger position. I think recognizing reality always enhances the chances for peace".
