Oil prices fall after US expands China blacklist
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Oil prices fell on Tuesday as the US announced the blacklisting of more Chinese firms, dampening expectations for a trade deal between the world's two largest economies.

Brent crude fell nearly 1 percent to $57.79 a barrel, while US crude prices dropped 1.1 percent to $52.18 a barrel.

On Monday, the US government said the blacklist would include some of China’s top artificial intelligence startups, ahead of trade-talks in Washington later this week.
