7:22 am
could be at risk in our case study from mozambique plus unbreakable glass mysteriously shattered and a sting operation to catch a spy that's how competitive the world of mobile communications has become the vested interests and players jockey for control. so we're looking at the oil markets this week one of those economic factors which affects almost everywhere in the world regardless of the politics behind it and right now the politics are all about iran the united states has demanded all countries stop buying iranian oil or they will face sanctions now ironic sport slightly more than a million barrels a day with the majority going to china india south korea japan and turkey and some of those customers especially china and turkey not happy more on the global impact in a moment after this report from roslyn jordan in washington. the u.s.
7:23 am
says its efforts to impose a worldwide embargo on iranian oil is already working in the last eleven months the trumpet ministration says iran has lost about ten billion dollars in oil revenue all this as washington to punish the han for what it calls the government's quote aligned ways the trumpet ministration and our allies are determined to sustain and expand the maximum economic pressure campaign against iran to end the regimes destabilizing activity threatening the united states our partners and allies and security in the middle east these demands are not just coming from the united states government and many of our allies and partners there similar to what we hear from the iranian people themselves the u.s. imposed oil sanctions on iran in may two thousand and eighteen after it withdrew from what president donald trump called the ineffective iran nuclear deal the u.s. wanted to cut off iran's ability to support hezbollah and who the fighters as well
7:24 am
as send aid to governments in syria and venezuela last fall when oil supplies were tight the u.s. gave several countries permission to wrap up their existing iranian oil purchases by no later than may second but now the u.s. says supplies are plentiful and so the five countries still importing iranian crude china india turkey japan and south korea no longer have a reason to keep buying from terre han. to conduct these transactions one almost always needs to participate in the financial markets and we intend to enforce the sanctions we don't lay out sanctions that we don't have any intention of encouraging countries to cooperate with analysts say it's important to look at the impact sanctions could have to untie so between the u.s. and other countries for example how sanctions could derail current chinese american trade talks but analysts say it's just as important to consider why the white house considers saudi arabia in the united arab emirates and not other oil producing
7:25 am
nations key to making the iranian embargo work i think that actually feeds into this narrative of this very close relationship that the president trump has a with the saudi royal family and of course the united states is again this is the president who looks at issues from a transactional standpoint state department officials won't say just how soon after may third that the u.s. will impose sanctions on countries still buying oil from iran but they are adamant they say the only way to get iran to change its behavior is by imposing an embargo and the only way to make certain that the embargo works is to impose sanctions on other countries even if those countries happen to be the u.s. as friends rosalyn jordan al-jazeera the state department. so let's examine the economics of all this because supply and demand is key to understanding oil's spillover effect for the global economy now opec in the big produces they always
7:26 am
want the prices to stay just that sweet spot high enough to keep them in business low enough though to keep the demand taking over and at the moment the trade data suggests iran's customers will be able to bridge any supply gap the united states has also reassured the market yes any gap in global oil production will be well supplied saudi arabia for its part says it won't raise oil output immediately actually there's no pick deal with russia in place to cut production but that could be revised as soon as june when the cartel meets but there are supply constraints as well places like venezuela and libya of course due to internal conflicts iran has threatened as it often does to block the strait of hormuz the major oil shipping route in the gulf the upshot of all this is that brant crude the global oil benchmark is up around forty percent since november so if supply fears do start to reemerge that could send oil prices even higher we're going to talk about this all with jamila joining us from kuala lumpur he is the global head of currency
7:27 am
strategy and market research at f x t m market it's great to have you with us jimi so all these countries the likes of china south korea japan and turkey they are going to have to do without iranian oil at least for the foreseeable future the united states is the more it there's plenty of oil around the place do you agree with that. well there certainly is a lot of different openers as but what i would do is liken this to a different scenario let's say iran is tottenham hotspur and the football team is now losses best striker hurricane the best strike in for a rainy an economy and for supply is actually oil so all of these other countries involved china india wages total to eight different nations they are now the oil supply from iran when these waivers expire at the beginning of may now there is enough oil i was swayed places like russia u.a.e. united arab emirates saudi arabia they can supply that oil however it will take
7:28 am
some time and this is why investors have priced in a higher oil valuation has touches highest level of two thousand and nine scene and it does look like the rally in the oil markets will continue a bit of it yet and what about the effect on iran we already know the u.s. sanctions being in place this is exactly what the slowly recovering iranian economy won't need so you turn the taps off on the oil market the iranian economy will suffer since those sanctions economic sanctions back in place in may two thousand and eight seen we've seen the iranian crumble like a biscuits inflation has rocketed sky high there's already pressures on the iranian economy that is going to see a recession of at least four percent according to the i.m.f. in two thousand and nine saying now that it has been confirmed that these sanctions on iranian specified spoil oil will be turned off as of next month we expect this
7:29 am
recession to extend even further looking at recession beyond four percent the iranian reality will remain under pressure and it will also increase those are very any an inflationary pressures which is very bad news indeed for the local consumers on the streets right so the iranians will rightly you would say feel aggrieved about the situation that they find themselves in who is or who might see. dand up for them allies wise people who are willing to take on the united states in some way shape or form and say we will continue to do our business was the nation that is known to import the most oil from iran is china so you would look at the side of china towards where it could potentially stand out for a run in the situation but i don't see this happening for this reason u.s. and china trade tensions and those trade negotiations have been going on in the background now for most of a year now the united states and china are very close to a new trade agreement if you checked the narrative from both sides of the chinese authorities and the united states authorities and fesses have become optimistic
7:30 am
that a trade agreement is close which is extremely good news for the global economy if that was a standing up for a run and this example hypothetically this would put those that progress on the back burner so that for this reason i do not think that will be somebody that stands up it's probably going to be accepted in my opinion that those produces all those imports of oil will look for oil i was where let me throw another country into the mix and that is turkey not so much in the sense of we've been talking about standing up for iran but the effect on to ease well an economy that has struggled itself its currency has been struggling in the last well year old really . what about the effect on to this is extremely bad news for the turkish economy for its markets and for its currency it means that now needs to look for another supplier of oil at a time where its financial conditions and not grades probably in my opinion we will
7:31 am
see weakness in the turkish lira butts there's of a currencies and economists out there that will benefit from this news i will mention russia and the russian ruble russia's one of the biggest producers of oil it can actually supply this gap and the russian ruble will strengthen on oil prices he started with a football analogy something which a lot of people can understand i didn't want to bring this all back to something people will understand because we've talked a lot about separate economies but people all over the world when they think about hiero prices they think about high fuel prices they think about taxes on aviation industry all these sorts of things these things which people need to keep an eye on or we sort of gotten used to things being just that bit higher when it comes to inconsistency the verbal narrative and the social media narrative in particular that comes from president trump he wants to lower oil prices however this news actually strengthen sort of prices because of the tight oil markets because the iranian oil supply has been cuts now everybody knows and as aware of the need for
7:32 am
oil prices to move lower the global economy struggling on its face and head winds of sixty thousand once again there is a multitude of different external challenges so the longer some picture is actually the oil prices should come back and sullen mansome but not in so it is known and confirmed well at this cut in supply from iranian oil being sent off will be filled so this is why over the longer term picture many still remain negative on oil prices which is why our everyday viewers everyday consumers do not have to worry too much but over the net some some chip political risk is being priced it back into oil this is why over prices are rally and they. at the highest level of two thousand and nineteen but it's still a dramatic distance away from what oil prices were a couple of years ago so no need to worry no need to panic buts we do need to monitor the day to day news narrative around oil prices and specifically what
7:33 am
happens next door is what happens next isn't it jamila joining us from kuala lumpur thank you so much for your time and still ahead on counting the cost why musicians at iraq's national symphony orchestra are trying to hit the right note. right now though the battle and it really is a battle over the next generation of mobile technology on the one side you've got china's huawei love for its phones but feared over a perceived threat of chinese spying which the company's always said is totally untrue and on the other side the likes of australia canada denmark new zealand and the us who've all banned the company from their networks but in the us there is a really curious tale of his involving while away a u.s. stocks up some so-called unbreakable glass and an f.b.i. .
