London, 20 Sep - The island nation of Sri Lanka has stopped its crude imports from Iran and is switching to other sources, according to Petroleum Resources Development Minister Arjuna Ranatunga.
Minister Ranatunga told reporters in Fujairah, the United Arab Emirates that Sri Lanka stopped importing Iranian crude as soon as US sanctions were announced.
He said: “We didn’t buy [directly] from Iran. We buy from Singapore, Dubai, Fujairah. We’re looking at signing government-to-government agreements over the next couple of months. We’re looking at long-term agreements.”
