    The budget bill for the next Iranian calendar year 1398 (starting on March 21, 2019) was presented to the parliament on December 6 while Iran’s economy, previously expected to boom, is experiencing the toughest conditions under the draconian U.S. sanctions.

    From America First to Energy First 

     America First Anyone who has read Trump's book “Art of the Deal”, as I have several times since buying the book when it was published, will understand that the rules of Trump's America First policies are very different to the current multilateral rules of the global game.

    Gas first – energy for peace

    When history is written, then President Trump's decision on 8th May to abandon the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) agreement with Iran may well be seen as a historic turning point.

    Iran: Energy First

    The recent UN Security Council meeting on Thursday, June 29, may have marked a turning point in Iran's relationship with the global community of nations.

On the one hand she announced that the U.S. would adhere to the JCPOA deal while on the other hand when she criticised Iran's allegedly "destructive and destabilizing" actions she found virtually no support.
