EU says committed to Iran nuclear deal, will not reimpose sanctions

Oil prices jump over 2% after US abandons Iran nuclear deal plans

While some well-received earnings updates also provided support, shares in companies with exposure to Iran fell, with plane maker Airbus and vehicle makers Renault (RENA.PA) and PSA (PEUP.PA) all trading down more than 1 percent.

The United States imports no crude directly from Iran. Even close allies in the European Union are signaling frustration with Trump's decision.

Not only does China's fast-growing economy have an enormous thirst for oil, but Beijing and Washington remain locked in an unpredictable trade dispute.

Last week, Britain, France and Germany had urged the Trump administration not to revoke the deal, arguing that the agreement was the best way of stopping Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Trump has to decide by May 12 whether to bring back sanctions against the country. The two countries are in talks, but appear to be far apart on major issues.

Ghana finally issues Ebola alert after deaths in Congo
Similar measures helped Africa's most populous country contain the virus during the West African epidemic that began in 2013. Congo's long experience of Ebola and its remote geography mean outbreaks are often localised and relatively easy to isolate.

In hours leading up to the announcement, there were conflicting reports about the future of the deal.

"I think it's a sign that he's planning on reimposing sanctions, and the only question for oil markets is how soon", said Joe McMonigle, an energy analyst at Hedgeye Research.

But the sanctions could take months to go into effect as the USA government develops guidance for companies and banks.

"While there are other imponderables like Saudi Arabia trying to increase crude output along with major OPEC (Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries) producers and the USA allies like France not being on board, the global economy does face bouts of uncertainty and volatility". Prices have gained over 8% over the past month and 15% since the beginning of the year.

Mr McIntyre said the decision restricts the ability of a "disproportionately well-funded side" to set the terms of the debate. Mr Leahy stressed the effectiveness of "the old fashioned ground war of meeting the people on a face to face basis".

"These missiles are Iranian manufactured and delivered to the Huthis". The Iranian government said it will take "whatever reciprocal measures it deems expedient" if it is not fully compensated for the USA withdrawal as provided for in the accord. And the impact on the global oil market may be less dramatic than some feared.

According to analysts at the Bank of America, the collapse of Venezuelan oil production and a potential breach of Iranian exports could push the price of Brent crude oil to 100 United States dollars per barrel in 2019.

The commitment of other partners to the Iran deal should be respected, said Le Drian, adding that the effects of the USA move were already being felt in rising oil costs and an increase in political uncertainty in the Middle East. It is possible that some other agreement is reached before then.

In an interview with Le Parisien, the foreign minister said: "We feel that the extraterritoriality of their sanction measures are unacceptable".
