US President Donald Trump has repeatedly slammed high oil prices and called on Saudi Arabia to help “stabilize” the energy market.
“Mr. Trump is trying to seriously reduce the export of Iran’s oil and also ensure the price of oil does not go up, but these two cannot happen together. If he wants the price of oil not to go up and the market not to get destabilized, he should stop unwarranted and disruptive interference in the Middle East and not be an obstacle to the production and export of Iran’s oil,” Zanganeh said, according to Iranian Students News Agency.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its member countries must lower oil prices and start contributing financially to their own defense, the US President stated during his address to the United Nations General Assembly.
The US President said at the 73rd UN General Assembly meeting that Washington will continue to impose sanctions against Iran despite the previously announced package of measures, which will enter into force on November 5. According to him, the “campaign of economic pressure” on Iran, which Washington considers “a sponsor of terrorism,” will continue.
