Iran feels economic pinch as it warns 
Moscow nuclear talks could stall



Tough Western sanctions imposed on Iran's oil market over its developing nuclear program has the country feeling an economic pinch, as its estimated to have lost more than $10 billion this year alone in oil revenues, Reuters reports.

The financial measures imposed by the US and the European Union have dropped Iran's oil output to the lowest level in 20 years, Reuters reports, as Iran is shipping out 600,000 less barrels per day than it did last year. The sanctions have made it harder for Iran to export its oil and more difficult for other countries to buy it. An European Union oil embargo is to take effect on July 1.

"This is an act of economic warfare. The sanctions are having a big effect in cumulative terms: Iran is being locked out of the global financial system," Mehdi Varzi, a former National Iranian Oil Co. official, told Reuters.

"The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day." - E. M. Bounds
