“Moreover, a Chinese crude oil future denominated in yuan will not be convertible and would be under state influence since the government still maintains discretion over the yuan, raising concerns that pricing will favor state oil companies,” said Trinh.
Reports say that Saudi Arabia—the world’s largest oil exporter—might start to accept Chinese yuan USDCNY, -0.0181% as payment for its usually dollar-denominated oil exports to China, after oil companies in Russia, Iran and Venezuela have done the same, according to Sue Trinh, head of Asia FX strategy at RBC.
A pair of senators on Friday released their bipartisan proposal to renew a powerful surveillance authority for collecting foreign intelligence on U.S. soil, but with a new brake on the government’s ability to access the data.
The bill from Sens. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) would require government agencies to obtain a warrant before reviewing communications to or from Americans harvested by the National Security Agency under the surveillance authority known informally as Section 702.
A security video obtained by The Times from Green Mill Liquor Store shows the moments after a sheriff’s SUV drove onto the sidewalk and hit the pedestrians.
Just moments before, the video shows a man walking through a parking lot next to the building abruptly turning and running toward the street just as the SUV appears, apparently reacting to the sound of the crash. Images from the scene show the crumpled right front side of the SUV and the tire folded under its mangled frame.

For Nevada's first execution in more than a decade, state officials are turning to a never-before-tried combination of drugs, including a powerful painkiller that is fueling much of the nation's opioid epidemic and a paralyzing drug that could mask any signs of trouble.
The drugs carry serious risks, and their use in an execution could invite new shortages of medication used for surgery and pain relief.
Financial advisers are increasingly using their ability to oversee client assets to root out and prevent one of the biggest problems facing older Americans: financial fraud.
Devin Pope, senior wealth adviser, Albion Financial Group, Salt Lake City: Mr. Pope has clients sign a form that gives him permission to speak with someone else about their financial situation if he believes they are losing mental capacity (and hence more likely to be victims of elder fraud).
A day after the latest in a dizzying series of sexual assault revelations enveloped Senator Al Franken and rattled the Capitol, politicians and comedians were left trying to assess the line between predatory behavior and an inexcusable mistake, as calls mounted for him to resign.
Mr. Franken, Democrat of Minnesota and a veteran of both comedy and politics — two industries under increased scrutiny for fostering cultures where sexual abuse is pervasive — was targeted by Republicans, including President Trump, who has himself been accused by multiple women of sexual harassment and assault.
Russia again vetoed a U.N. resolution Friday that would extend the mandate of the expert body charged with determining responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria, dooming its operation and making it exceedingly difficult to hold anyone accountable for the deaths of hundreds of civilian victims.
U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told the council after the vote the veto "shows us that Russia has no interest in finding common ground with the rest of this council to save the JIM.". "Russia will not agree to any mechanism that might shine a spotlight on the use of chemical weapons by its ally, the Syrian regime," she said. "It's as simple and sinful as that."
President Trump on Friday reversed the government’s decision to start allowing hunters to import trophies of elephants that were killed in two African countries, pending a further review.
Ms. Sanders confirmed Friday that a near-total ban on the commercial trade of African elephant ivory implemented during the Obama administration would remain in place.
In the last two decades, legal experts say, the United States Supreme Court has slowly eroded the country’s body of corruption laws, shifting the jurisprudential landscape in a manner that has raised the bar when it comes to prosecuting politicians accused of dabbling in dubious behavior.
In general, however, legal experts are more concerned that the Supreme Court’s rulings will make it harder not only for the government to win corruption cases, but also to maintain the verdicts on appeal.
With the furor over sexual misconduct allegations against Roy S. Moore only growing, it was his wife, Kayla Moore, who was at center stage on the Alabama Capitol steps on Friday, her gold cross earrings glinting in the sun as she defiantly defended her husband.
As Mr. Moore wages a two-front battle against the accusations by nine women of sexual misconduct and unwanted advances, and against Washington Republicans who want nothing more than for him to exit the race for an Alabama Senate seat, the limelight is shining on his most prominent defender: his wife.
U.S. President Donald Trump has said that he will put off a controversial decision to lift a ban on animal trophy imports until he reviews conservation-related factors.

WATCH: Wilfrid Laurier TA says University censored her for showing clip on gender pronouns. While the university said the meeting took place, they didn’t comment on it or respond to a request for interview from Global News.
