President Donald Trump lashed out at Opec with a warning to stop manipulating oil markets and piled pressure on close USA allies in an interview that aired on Sunday with a threat to sanction European companies that do business with Iran.
The official warned countries including China and India, who are key buyers of Iranian oil, that they should stop purchasing crude from the country before the November deadline or face U.S. sanctions.
Despite the relief from Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation, oil markets remain tense because of unplanned outages from Canada to Venezuela and Libya.

Iran has asked fellow OPEC members to "refrain from any unilateral measures", warning that would undermine the unity of OPEC, following reports that Saudi Arabia has raised its oil production to a record high this month.
On Fox, Trump directed blame at the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, of which Saudi Arabia is a member.
Despite the apparent supply relief from Saudi Arabia, oil markets remain tense over escalating trade disputes between the United States and other major economies including China, the European Union, India and Canada, as well as the looming new U.S. sanctions against Iran.
