Oil slide after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani claimed on Friday the U.S. offered to remove all sanctions on Iran in exchange for negotiations. The State Department later denied those claims, causing oil to rebound from the lows
WTI crude futures were last lower by 2% to $55.27 following the report after falling as low as $54.79. Brent crude futures fell 1.9% to $60.59.
The German chancellor, the prime minister of England (Britain) and the president of France were in New York and all insisted that this meeting take place. And America says that it will lift the sanctions, Rouhani said on his official website, according to Reuters. It was up for debate what sanctions will be lifted and they had said clearly that we will lift all sanctions.
But this action wasnt in a manner that was acceptable, meaning that in the atmosphere of sanctions and the existence of sanctions and the toxic atmosphere of maximum pressure, even if we want to negotiate with the Americans in the 5+1 framework, no one can predict what the end and result of this negotiation will be, Rouhani added.
The State Department called the report baseless, adding that the U.S. is committed to zero oil exports from Iranian regime, Bloomberg News said.
