Ayatollah Khamenei has made clear his stance on the flailing nuclear agreement.  The supreme leader warned the country might walk away from its nuclear deal with western world powers in a statement that seems he’s losing faint in the European states to save the accord after US withdrawal. 

In a closed door meeting with President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday with his cabinet said, [they] “should give up on hope on [Europe] over economic issues or the nuclear deal.”   He continued, "The nuclear deal is a means, not the goal, and if we come to this conclusion that it does not serve our national interests, we can abandon it."

In May the Ayatollah offered a set of conditions for Western powers if they wanted to keep the Middle Eastern country in the deal.  They included bank trade safeguards with Tehran and Iranian oil sales. 

This statement comes as the small country prepares for another round of US sanctions that sent company’s running for the hills.  The US intends to reduce Iran’s oil exports to zero after the sanctions in November. 

I often remind you the western oil company’s bent over backwards to get Saudi Arabia to slow the production of oil in the name of profit increases.  After more than 15 years of OPEC maintaining low oil prices for the world the US energy company’ s  are finally getting their way.  Dipping into the reserves to ensure higher profits and higher prices at the gas pump.
