violate the iran nuclear deal by pulling out now the u.s. wants countries to boycott really you know oil as part of stronger international sanctions the president has done rouhani has appeared to threaten the oil exports from other middle eastern countries if the u.s. pushes ahead as nice as it is incorrect or an unwise to imagine that somebody or producer countries will be able to export their surplus oil and iran would not be able to export its oil. really infectious have threatened to disrupt oil shipments in the past to do so they would target the straits of hormuz that's a major shipping lane but it's also a small stretch of water between iran to the north and oman on the ribbon peninsula to the south at its narrowest point there are just fifty five kilometers between the two pieces of land twenty percent of the world's oil passes through here but i don't think iran will ever need to really exercise this threat we have to remember iran is not the only country that is upset with the u.s. pressure on opec all that idea of the oil exports not coming from iran or remember
6:01 am
the opec countries the whole reason a lot of these countries are in crises in the first place is because of the u.s. shale oil industry which brought prices down in the first place the u.s. has previously warned countries they must stop all imports from november or face sanctions from america no exceptions our focus is on getting as many countries importing iranian crude down to zero as soon as possible we are also working with oil market participants including producers and consumers. to ensure market stability iran has warned any boycott of the oil industry could push prices higher it company provides around two percent of global supply or three million barrels a day the u.s. is already concerned about rising prices at the weekend u.s. president donald trump called saudi arabia's king solomon and said they do agree that the saudis would boost production but there's no sign that prices are dropping particularly as the global economy is growing and demand for energy is up india
6:02 am
south korea turkey all u.s. allies are major importers of any unoiled they might not be able to switch providers quickly or even want to the trumpet ministration would then have to decide of sanctions on them would fall or the other signatories to the nuclear deal say they still support it and are looking at ways to save it alan fischer al-jazeera. for more on this international oil economist mom two thousand may joins me now in the studio thanks very much for coming into al-jazeera a president champagne and making all these announcements that he's going to reduce the rainy and oil exports to zero but can he i mean i'm thinking maybe china and india might have something to say about what he is doing is that he is waging a psychological warfare against iran to give the impression that you as sanctions against iran will cause the iranian oil exports to lose one million million barrels
6:03 am
a day that is not going to happen and i'll explain why the sanctions before the twenty fifteen succeeded because of two reasons the combination of european union sanctions on shipping and insurance company insuring the shipments of iranian oil and the second one the south american sanctions on banking the european union so far said they will abide by the nuclear agreement and they will not comply by the american sanction and they will continue to buy iranian oil as four of the american sanctions one banking things have changed completely instead of the petro dollar alone in the market we have the petro yuan which is supported by gold and china introduced it in march twenty six this year and it is starting to undermine
6:04 am
the better of the petro dollar admission to that iran has been using the yuan for as payments for its or so it will continue now to use it to you and for shipments to the european union it will get the euro for russia and. and india they have bought a lot of trade agreements i mean i think that the crux of what you're saying is exactly that president sometimes not treated driving gas prices higher getting gas he needs fuel and the u.s. this must be to a street mi g.'s pricing now in the end he will be punished for this if indeed we see the price of oil go up but it's probably going to be us well. or you produce i believe as an economist there is a viable economy principle they should aim to maximize their finite assets meaning oil to the point that the global economy can't tolerate the glore
6:05 am
global economy will not be shy in telling the world that you have reached the limit in the rise in oil prices saw i believe also that the global economy can absorb easily a price of one hundred dollars or more furthermore opec members which account for seventy four percent of global production they need an oil price above under a dollar to balance their books the number of their last three hundred billion dollars between twenty forty and twenty sixteen so they don't want to pass again through that ordeal the iranian revolutionary guard saying we can't enforce closing the straits of hormuz if we need to and that's what president rouhani has been waving that threats a lot of oil go to syria little stretch of water
6:06 am
a million barrels a day indeed but can i and would they military lee they cannot close it because the story it is not that narrow but what they can do they can mine it and they can level threats against any time catus crossing the street. that will frighten all ten cans of oil from around the world enough to come to the gulf area which amounts to the same thing which will push the prices up and that's not just the rain oil that's all oil from that particular area that has to come through yes well iran is saying the sanctions are economy and political war against them they're out of bounds as an independent country did be fed they'd have to add retaliate they are saying if we cannot export oil nobody will of course these threats of closing the street of water was just a threat for the time being but they have other actions of disrupting open asians
6:07 am
in major installations in the gulf area like which is the biggest tedham in l. for loading saudi oil i wonder if president trungpa thought this for them to follow me thank you so much for enlightening us all thank. coming up on al-jazeera this news hour. the. protest outside and inside poland supreme close as its top judge turns up for work in defiance of a new law forcing her of this to retire it was instrumental in the moving robert mugabe from how that can zimbabwe's military maintain its distance during this month's elections plus install the australian basketball team returned home after an ugly brawl to well cup qualifier against the philippines getting a. new
