"If Iran is under sanctions, the price of oil would rise and Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia can not do anything to supply additional oil to the market", Iran's OPEC governor Hossein Kazempour Ardebili was quoted as saying by SHANA, the oil ministry's news agency.

"They'll pay us. The problem is nobody ever asks".

Saudi Arabia's oil output has reached record highs - and the country could further boost production next month as United States sanctions on Iran edge closer.

Riyadh, which is the world's top oil exporter and the largest OPEC producer, has been criticized by Trump for high petroleum prices. "Not good. We want them to stop raising prices, we want them to start lowering prices".
