Iran says EU “definitely” will not impose oil sanctions

-

Reuters: Iran said on Sunday the European Union “definitely” will not impose sanctions on the country’s oil exports as the measure will harm the global crude market, the Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi said.

TEHRAN Dec 11 (Reuters) – Iran said on Sunday the European Union “definitely” will not impose sanctions on the country’s oil exports as the measure will harm the global crude market, the Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi said.

“Our policy is sustainable supply of oil to Europe … Iran is a major oil producer and any sanctions on our oil export will definitely harm the global market,” Qasemi told a news conference.

EU leaders called on Friday for more sanctions against Iran by the end of January, in an effort to increase pressure on Tehran over its nuclear programme, which the United States and its allies say is a cover to build bombs. Tehran denies this.

“We can easily replace the European market,” Qasemi said.
