US ‘gives no green light’, Iran has its own oil customers

EghtesadOnline: The US “has not given Iran the green light” for selling its crude oil and the country has its own customers, said Iran’s oil minister on Friday.

Javad Owji, who made the remarks during his visit to the southwestern province of Fars to inaugurate and give the go-ahead for some projects, added that Iran is now producing more than 3.3 million barrels of oil per day.

“We are devising a plan to increase the country’s oil output as we have our own customers for it,” the minister said, according to Shana.

“All measures have been carried out under difficult circumstances caused by sanctions,” underlined Owji, adding the US has imposed 223 more sanctions on Iran since the Raeisi administration took office two years ago.

Speaking to reporters at the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank on Wednesday, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen rejected a widely held notion that the US had gradually relaxed some enforcement of sanctions on Iranian oil sales as part of a wider effort at a diplomatic rapprochement, Time reported.

“We have not in any way relaxed our sanctions on Iranian oil,” she said, adding the U.S. constantly reviews new information that could justify a tightening of sanctions. “We will continue to do that.”  / MEHR
