In Iran, the first phase of the South Azadegan project is expected to contribute to oil production growth over the next five years, reaching a plateau of 255,000 barrels of day from 2021. Iran announced in January that its production of oil has reached around 4 million barrels per day (mb/d) – a yet another indication that the country is regaining its crude production abilities after multiple years of sanctions. Gholam-Reza Manouchehri, the deputy for development and engineering affairs of the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), told the domestic media that Iran was already on the way to make a stronger oil market recovery, emphasizing that this would be expedited through the development of several key projects such as South Azadegan within the next few years.

Press TV Iran says it has exported $80 million worth of carpets to the United States over a period of 11 months starting March 21, 2016. Hamid Karegar, the president of Iran National Carpet Center, told local media that the exports had been mainly carried out directly from Iran to the US. The boost, he emphasized, came after a multi-year halt in exports to the United States that followed a ban devised by the previous US administration in 2010. Karegar told Iran’s IRNA news agency that the doors for exports of Iran’s carpets to the US market literally opened after the removal of sanctions against the Islamic Republic in January 2016. “It was a month later that the first consignment of carpets – that had been barred from the US from 2010 – was sent to Los Angeles from Hamburg,” he said. “Ever since, there has been a surge in exports of Iranian carpets to the US.

S. help for granted. Trump will take part in a meeting of NATO heads of state in Brussels on May 25, the White House announced Tuesday. Spokesman Sean Spicer said the president looks forward to discussing issues critical to the alliance, especially allied responsibility-sharing and NATO's role in the fight against terrorism. As far as the U.S-Russia relationship, Trump has yet to make any major steps as president to bring the two nations closer together. As a candidate, Trump opened the door to potentially rolling back the sanctions imposed on Russia after its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region in 2014, a move Democrats and Republicans in Congress oppose. But as president, Trump has tamped down such suggestions as long as Russia fails to live up to its various commitments to end the fighting in Ukraine. His administration also has resisted Russia's calls to join forces against the Islamic State group in Syria, where the former Cold War foes have long backed opposing sides in a civil war.
