morning. from jerusalem, tehran, and hong kong. we start with competing interests over iran after an attack on an oil facility. the president is claiming he is eager to deal with iran, desperately trying to keep the u.s. out of a middle east conflict. mr. trump says it looks like iran is behind the attack. one day after saying it was locked and loaded, he spoke alongside the crown prince of bahrain. if there's any strat yi egy, it not clear. >> i'm not looking to get into new conflict. but sometimes you have to. >> the united states has determined the attack on the saudis originated outside iran. a representative for iran, telling capitol hill staffers, it was not carried out by
rebels. he noted that the saudis view this as their 9/11. that fact does not change the president's willingness to engage with the iranians. iran's supreme leader is ruling out talks with president trump, at least for now. let's go back to tehran. nick paton walsh is there. nick? you don't get a higher voice. he direct lly addresses what so think is the kernel for whatever strength that u.s. has here. he is quite clear there will be no negotiation with the united states at any level. everyone should know and notice this is a trick. by that, he is saying the maximum pressure campaign is designed to force iran back to talks, without pressure being
lifted off him. he goes on to make sure nobody in his government feels otherwise. goes on to say, all the iranian officials, and others, have unanimously agreed that we will not negotiate with the u.s., bilateral or multilateral. he throws out the possibility of talks maybe at some point down the line. maybe offering the humiliating moment. rejoined the nuclear deal, he may be welcomed on the talks at a multilateral level. maybe amidst all of this, this is the ultimate authority here in iran saying no to that. certainly, in the weeks ahead, things can change. he doesn't address the idea of what would happen if sanctions were lifted against iran.
but this message is clear. some were thinking that secretary of state mike pompeo was to wlblame without evidence. remember, the phrases originated inside iran, and was fired from iranian territory. there was pressure to get them to the negotiating table. >> nick paton walsh for us. thank you for that, nick. the attacks on key saudi arabia oil facilities are sending prices soaring. let's bring in andrew stevens live in hong kong. andrew, good morning to you. are we going to see more of that today? >> in the trading day, prices are coming off. when the markets opened, the initial reaction was a 20% spike
in the price of oil. it finished the day about 40% higher and has come off from there. make no mistake, this is a massive jump in the oil price. and the question, which is now being asked and what global economists are looking at, is what is the impact on what is a weak global economy, with a weakening outlook for it, as well. and the outlook seems to be, it depends how long it will take to get back to protection. 5% of the world's oil supply was snuffed out by that attack. that is a massive amount to lose in one incident. the saudis haven't said how much damage has been caused by the attack. analysts say, it has a couple of months to get things back online. this can be -- the short fall can be covered in the short term by strategic reserves, which is all around the world and held by key global economies, including
china and the u.s., obviously. if it goes longer than that, that $10 oil price spike, that starts to impact on the global economy. like china, germany, and japan, big oil importers in their own right, will get hurt the most. and when those economies start to slow, so, too, does the global economy. >> andrew stevens keeping an eye on the oil prices around the world. the white house is silencing two former aides and an extrump campaign manager. they were southbounded to appear before the white house judiciary committee. they are not expected to appear. lewandowski is expected to show up. but the white house is directing him not to answer questions about events that took place after president trump was elected. jerry nadler calls the decision to keep the former aides from testifying a shocking and dangerous use of executive
