Iran proposes new nuclear deal. Iran has offered a deal with the U.S. that would include permanent enhanced nuclear inspections in return for the U.S. lifting sanctions. Iran’s foreign minister Javad Zarif said it was “a substantial move.” The offer comes shortly after the U.S. downed an Iranian drone in the Persian Gulf on Thursday.

    this commoditisation oil as futures products has butchered the few genuine oil rich nations -libya, iraq, ira, russia, venezuela. most of the others are fake oil excpet of course north sea.
