Oil prices edged higher on Friday, supported by a weaker dollar, though tensions between the United States and China, as China ordered the United States to close its consulate in the city of Chengdu on Friday, responding to a U.S. demand this week that China close its Houston consulate.

Brent crude was up 10 cents at $43.41 a barrel at 1323 GMT, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude was up 18 cents at $41.25.
