Iran excludes Britain, France from its oil exports list

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, April 19, IRNA -- Iran will continue its oil exports to other countries excluding Britain and France, Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi said Thursday.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference, Qasemi said Tehran has officially cut off its oil exports to London and Paris.

He said that Tehran was closely watching the way European states were dealing with Iran.

The minister hoped that Tehran’s next round of talks with representatives form western states in Baghdad, Iraq (set for May 23, 2012) would follow up the agreements reached between the two sides in Istanbul, Turkey.

“If the sanctions currently imposed against Iran would not be removed and if new sanctions be imposed against the country instead, this would seriously turbulent the energy market,” said the minister.

Iran would face no problem exporting its oil as there are new costumers with new contracts for purchasing the country’s crude oil, Qasemi said.
