Oil is not for dollars. Are Iranian Faberges Strong?

85
The world froze in anticipation of the speeches of the official representatives of the State Department, the Pentagon and, possibly, the League of Sexual Reforms about the violation of human rights, the deepest crisis of democracy, the suppression of freedom of speech in the Islamic Republic of Iran. What's the matter? What could be the reason for this waiting? The fact is that at the end of last week the news agency Reuters presented the material with reference to sources in Tehran, which (in the material) refers to Iran’s refusal to export oil for dollars.


Oil is not for dollars. Are Iranian Faberges Strong?


That is how about refusal ?! - startled on Wall Street. - We are here, you know, turning the operation on the next clash of interests, on the crops of chaos using the methods of games with a barrel relying on the dollar, and Iran, from which we also remove the sanctions, decided to arrange a Persian surprise? Naturally, the White House also got excited, because in this building, as is well known, people sitting in their posts are not without financial lobbies and sponsorship from Wall Street - with the desire of these sponsors to get financial returns from their main protégé. And, as again it is known, neither the White House nor Wall Street is very, you know, disliked when someone declares his refusal to use the most democratic currency in the world ...

As soon as Western news agencies spread information about the refusal (at least, it is the Western media that write about the refusal) of Iran to sell oil for dollars, the American hawks attacked their lame duck with new force. They say that this is you, Mr. Obama, just recently signed a resolution on partial lifting of sanctions against Iran, on the basis of which Western banks defrost impressive Iranian assets (about 100 billion dollars). You signed, and they draw figs to us here ... First, our marines are forced to come to snot and kneel, and then they refuse to sell oil for dollars, actually trying to get out of our titanic work of the formed influence.

The Nobel Peace Prize Laureate wanted to once again come up with an “address to the nation,” but it seemed he finally fell into depression, flopped into a chair in the Oval Office and let out a mean presidential tear, realizing that 8 years of presidency are running out, to put it mildly, not quite as originally planned. Already, old Hillary is a kosterit for not leaving her any democratic backing ...

However, let us return to the Iranian "demarche" in relation to dollar oil deals. If you believe the reports of Western sources, Iran intends to trade its "black gold" with companies such as Spanish Cepsafrench Total, as well as with an international trading agent of the Russian Lukoil company Litasco. Moreover, Iranian oil will be traded in euros. A source Reuters at the National Iranian Oil Company announces that this is being done in order not to fall under the total influence of the US currency.

Here, it would seem, one can wonder, what is the currency diversification? .. - What is a dollar, what is the euro - today almost everything is the same, especially if we consider that the US is trying to keep Europe on a short leash. However, the reality is somewhat different. In Iran, they are well aware that if they start trading oil in the US currency, they will receive substantial external control over the produced trade operations from the US side. And if there is such control, then, according to the American tradition, American pressure will also reveal itself with obvious attempts to play with the revenue part of the country's budget and, indirectly, the mood of its ordinary citizens.

Understanding this, Tehran attempted to find a plausible alternative to the US dollar. The alternative does not seem to be the most outstanding, because the dollar-euro peg is unambiguous, but Iran has its own considerations on this, and they are not without grounds.

Firstly, the euro is the currency that all participants in trade relations can afford to pay for transactions, especially if we consider that the buyers at the first stage are European and Russian companies. Secondly, any attempt to weaken the euro, which the States may try to make in order to annoy Tehran, will result in problems for the States themselves. Why? Because the level of competitiveness of European goods in the world market, including, of course, the American one, will automatically increase. And although the euro is often called the same dollar, only of the European type (dollar, profile view), in fact the dollar and the euro are competing world currencies, and such competition often results in serious economic clashes with the constant desire of the US to click on European "friends" on the nose.

So, if we assume that Iran will lobby for oil trade in the euro, what to expect? First of all, we should expect a new pressure from Washington on those whom it almost completely turned into vassals, that is, on the European Union. The European Union is probably already now being explained that trading not for dollars, and even with Iran is “non-kosher” and non-democratic, and that if suddenly ah-ah-ah, then immediately ata-that in the form of sanctions against the same French giant Total or Spanish Cepsa.

But Iran has Lukoil in reserve. This is why there is nothing to lose from American sanctions, if only because Lukoil under these sanctions has been working since 2014 of the year, but continues to carry out trade contacts, including with European colleagues. And if the States still pull the European companies mentioned above for a leash and “clarify” that it is not worth starting oil trade with Iran for the euro, then serious trading prospects may open up for Lukoil. And it is through Lukoil traders that the same Europe will have the opportunity to receive Iranian oil, which in comparison with oil from the Saudis will cost less by about Euro 4-5. It's about oil grade Iran Heavy, the price for which Tehran marked for Europe back in January.

True, there is one thing but. In 2007, Iran has already announced that it is preparing to give up oil trading for dollars. Moreover, the statement was made by then-President Ahmadinejad. But at the same time in Tehran, Ahmadinejad was not supported for a number of reasons. And in 2011, Libya emerged, and the Americans decided to demonstrate how they are prepared to deal with those countries and their leaders if they declare their desire to abandon their dollar dependence. It is worth recalling that the leader of the Libyan Jamahiriya, Muammar Gaddafi, promoted the idea of ​​an all-African gold dinar. What happened to Gaddafi later, the Americans are ecstatic to this day.

In this regard, the question is: does Tehran frizz? Moreover, all other exporting countries (including the Russian Federation) so far frankly treat the dollar as the currency of hydrocarbon trading.

    In this regard, the question is: will Tehran drift?

    And what actually happened?
    1. Iran goes to pay in euros on the part of recently concluded oil contracts, and does not completely refuse from the dollar in foreign trade.
    2. The United States removed only a part of the sanctions from Iran, and Iranians cannot sell their oil in the United States. Moreover, any trade with the use of the dollar, as rightly noted in the article, is problematic for Iran today because of the risks of getting under sanctions
    3. Iran considers Europe as the most important market for oil and gas. The European currency is the euro, however.
    4. Iran switches to oil trading for euro, not for yuan (hi to China)
    5. Iran binds the calculations in euros to the dollar at the time of the transaction. That is, it does not consider the euro as a full-fledged currency and, ultimately, is oriented towards the dollar.
    So nothing extraordinary happened. You can not worry about Iran - there is no reason to drift smile

          Complex situevina. Money doesn’t matter anymore. Now governments are scratching turnips, how to explain it to the layman.

          Dollar = Brand, just a "dishonest word" under which everything is bought and sold, as it were. What will be the result of replacing the "word" or putting another into use? The deterioration of the lives of ordinary people around the world. The world is in "zugzwang", any global CHANGE (in politics, economics, including the rejection of the Dollar) leads to a deterioration in life. Some believe that war can resolve the issue. They are wrong.

        Iran refused to pay in dollars before the sanctions, and the "Iranian nuclear program" immediately appeared. So nothing has changed, except that Iran accepts gold as an alternative to the euro. Only gold bullion, not paper. These are two big differences. Although settlements in gold at some moments may be even more profitable for the buyer, no one is in a hurry to bring gold to Iran, because it simply does not exist.

        And the second point, do not think that Iran was directly written from the happiness of lifting the sanctions, the fact is that a large import item went exactly offsets on the frozen assets of the Islamic republic, and the largest owner of these offsets was pushing through the lifting of sanctions, China. I don’t know about Russia, but its influence here was the least. So in the foreign trade of Iran, nothing new, by the way, you can buy agricultural products and other things for greens, we are talking only about oil. For the buyer today, it does not care, counted on the account for a minimum commission, that's all business. And Europe, which will be the largest buyer after China, doesn’t need to recount anything.

            “In November 2000, Hussein made a statement that Iraq had decided to sell oil for euros, not dollars. In November 2000, when there were still two whole months before the introduction of the new currency into large circulation, Iraq refused to use the dollar as a currency Malaysia and a number of Asian countries attending their summit intended to follow suit. Russia sought a strategic energy-based alliance with Europe. All these intentions would mean the beginning of the end of "free oil" for the United States and the end of blackmail with using the dollar as a "preferred reserve currency" and the associated political power over the world. This could have happened if the European Union had not caved in after 11/XNUMX and if it had not been for sabotage by England ... "

      Iran ties calculations in euros to the dollar at the time of the transaction. That is, it does not consider the euro as a full-fledged currency and, ultimately, focuses on the dollar.

      With the lifting of sanctions from Iran, his accounts for $ 100 billion were unfrozen!
      And now the most interesting thing is that Iran has a very great desire to transfer this amount at the exchange rate to EURO. Thus, even before it began to trade oil for the euro, Iran has already damaged American interests by reducing its dependence on the dollar by 100 billion, which translates into zero your claim that Iran ultimately focuses on the dollar.
      Something like this.

      The fact is that he should buy it in dollars. That is, buy for dollars, and not in a precept. Even Europe pays in dollars for oil and gas. He buys lollars and pays them. And then the seller can then convert wherever he wants. That's the whole dollar pyramid and holds that for deals you need exactly the dollar. If you buy directly in euros, tying it to the dollar or tying it off, the very idea of ​​maintaining demand for the dollar will be undermined.

      The article is about nothing at all. The planned supplies of Iran make up 0,5% of the world oil market. This market is now the "buyer's" market, which dictates the terms. The buyer does not want to take on currency risks, and even if they manage to find such an idiot, this will not affect the market. Now, if the dollar becomes as "stable" as the ruble, then yes ...
      it has nothing to do with "faberge", no matter how much the author wants it.

    I think that this is a certain twist of the tail from the leadership of Iran. I would like to believe that their "Faberge" is stronger than steel, but ... after all, they will be bombed. Definitely bombed. Even the Ishilovites will stop bombing, and all forces will be transferred to Iran, because if such a demarche is left unattended, it means completely losing face, authority and influence, and what can I say - the dollar power on which the American economy and democracy are based.
    Most likely, the Iranian leadership under this brand will knock out additional bonuses.

        True, they themselves are unlikely to directly get involved. But the Saudis will be pushed to Iran, especially since the ground has already been prepared, at the embassy level, Iran and the Saudis have already fled, it remains to pull the trigger. And then one way or another, the Yankees will again win, regardless of who wins this confrontation, the war is region, between such players, will definitely throw the price tag of a barrel to heaven.
        However, for the Russian Federation this is also not a loss, especially if using its current presence in the region and the influence associated with it, the Russian Federation will be able to reconcile Iran and the Saudis.

    here again, some misunderstandings ___ Banks of China forced Russian companies and individuals to close accounts and transfer funds to other places, and also refused to issue loans. This was reported to Kommersant-Vlast magazine by the Executive Director of the Russia-ASEAN Business Council, Viktor Tarusin.

    According to him, due to relations with American partners, Chinese banks have actually joined the sanctions against Russia. The only exceptions were ExIm Bank and China Development Bank - analogues of VEB and VTB.

    China's investments in the Russian economy in 2015 amounted to $ 794 million, which is 0,7% of the country's total foreign investment ($ 116 billion). The supply of liquefied natural gas more than halved, and the overall decline in trade with China following the results of last year could reach 30%.

Every New Year, Russia plans to exclude the dollar from the calculations here and there, the President constantly gives instructions that are not enforced with enviable persistence. And things are still there ... To whom do our officials serve? Is it time to figure it out? Already, talk began to be circulated about the abolition of the elections to the State Duma and the President, they were afraid that the EP might fly in protest ... Although the Kasyanovs, Yavlinsky, Kasparovs and the hedgehog with them could break into power. There is something to think about !!!

    Meanwhile:
    Moscow. January 24th. INTERFAX.RU - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and PRC President Xi Jinping held a meeting in Tehran on Saturday, signing 17 bilateral agreements, including the construction of two nuclear power plants in southern Iran and long-term supplies of Iranian oil to China. In total, the agreements concluded over 10 years will ensure an increase in trade between countries to $ 600 billionwrites the Iranian newspaper Tehran Times.

    Notice, 600 billion US dollars, not yuan, not euro, not rubles ...
    I repeat for those who still consider Iran to our allies, Iran wants to trade with us only at our expense, we give them $ 5 billion to trade with us ...

    This is potentially beneficial for Europeans. Let the pressure remain, but still there will be no Amer fines on European banks for any wrong transactions with wrong sellers and wrong buyers.

    If the Amerastas again decide to impose sanctions on Iran, then they will hardly be able to drag them through the Security Council; and the EU still does not join the non-UN sanctions, whether or not.

    The topic will be exaggerated. And immediately, apparently, Iran will not switch to Eureka.

    He wanted the Nobel Peace Prize laureate to once again make an “appeal to the nation,” but he seemed to be completely depressed,

    "True, there is one but here. In 2007, Iran already announced that it was preparing to abandon the oil trade for dollars. Moreover, the then President Ahmadinejad made this statement. But then in Tehran, Ahmadinejad was not supported for a number of reasons. And in 2011, year Libya emerged, and the Americans decided to demonstrate how they are ready to deal with those countries and their leaders if they declare their desire to abandon dollar dependence.It is worth recalling that the leader of the Libyan Jamahiriya Muammar Gaddafi promoted the idea of ​​an all-African gold dinar. , - the Americans are still demonstrating with gusto. "

    With Gaddafi, yes, it worked. It happened because they did not support it correctly. Now Libya is without gold, who knows where and who has it. The whole world saw it and understood the price of democracy in the American way. The Iranians themselves were under sanctions and therefore kept silent. The last stone and probably the last in the oil structure was Syria. The moment of truth has come for everyone. The world is divided into those who are "for" and those who are "against" striped "democracy." Not the last word for Russia, but this is a different topic.

It is shameful and shameful to lower the country that could destroy the whole Earth. Cheap rulers bought for green pieces of paper are destroying their own people and countries. Look at all the last decisions made. Everything is completely against the people and everything is for officials with oligarchs and world bourgeois. And the last statements of the enemies of the people? Everything goes to the point that our people will soon not need the top leadership at all.

    Well, it is clear to everyone that by trading in "euro" Iran is trying to get away from "total" control over the dollar by the United States, but "horseradish is not sweeter", the fact is that the United States demanded that the European Union introduce a similar system " accounting for every euro ", in anticipation of the creation of the" North Atlantic Trade Union "which will undoubtedly be created in the near future. So that Iran, in order to avoid total control over its accounts in Western banks, will have to immediately convert the euros received from transactions either in yuan or gold, and most likely it will choose both.
