Former Secretary of state advocated the preservation of deal with Iran, but replaced it Mike Pompeo agree with the position of the President of Donald trump that the deal should be terminated.

The UK has purchased gas from Russia at $ 1.5 billion (it is strange that at the regular price), and Europe is not left behind and the beginning of the week will continue to raise quotes to the top of the range for oil and gas.
