Crude Price Suffers Over US-China Trade War

IRGC confirms naval drill in Persian Gulf waters Protesters in Iran attack seminary, break windows

In order to pass through tough times ahead the returning USA sanctions, we need to promote our cooperation with global power like China, Russia, and the EU, Akhoundi said on August 5, IRNA news agency reported. Demonstrators in the capital chanted "death to the dictator", and there have also been rallies in Shiraz, Isfahan and the holy city of Qom.

With tensions high ahead of the return of U.S. sanctions on Tuesday, the government of President Hassan Rouhani also faces opposition from conservatives and religious leaders, who have long disliked his outreach to the West and accuse him of governing only for the rich.

"Most have two passports and their families are overseas".

Rouhani's apparent threat earlier in July to disrupt oil shipments from neighboring countries came in reaction to the looming USA sanctions and efforts by Washington to force all countries to stop buying Iranian oil.

The arrival of the ATR72-600 airplanes at Tehran's Mehrabad International Airport represented perhaps the last benefits Iran will see under the nuclear deal after President Donald Trump withdrew from it in May.

Iran said its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps held a naval exercise in the Strait of Hormuz last week "within the framework of their annual training program".

China, a member of the U.N. Security Council, said Friday it was willing to work to save a nuclear agreement that lets Iranian oil flow through the market.

The Associated Press reported that a shipment of five new ATR72-600 planes arrived in Tehran as part of a deal with a French-Italian manufacturer for 20 aircraft.

USA sanctions targeting Iranian trade in automobiles, gold and other key metals will be re-imposed on Monday, while sanctions targeting the country's energy and banking sector will resume November 4. However, only 13 planes have been delivered since sanctions on Iran were lifted under the nuclear pact.

It is not yet clear how all this will affect ordinary Iranians, but a Western diplomat in Tehran who monitors the economy said prices of basic foods were already creeping up.

People are growing increasingly angry over rising inflation and a dramatic plunge in the currency - the rial - which has lost almost two-thirds of its value in the past six months.

"There is a massive loss of confidence in the financial system and the government's ability to control things and withstand sanctions".
