Talks that could lift sanctions on Iranian oil and boost VLCCs seem unstable at best.

On Tuesday, the on-again, off-again negotiations resumed in Qatar to revive the scuttled 2015 deal under which Iran agree to limit its nuclear programme in exchange for the US removing economic sanctions.

But a day later, reports are circulating the talks are ending, although neither side would confirm.

“Washington is seeking to revive the [deal] in order to limit Iran without economic achievement for our country,” Iran’s Tasnim News Agency reported, according to the Associated Press.
