ImageTehran, Iran, Nov. 18 – Iran has imported some 630,000 tons of rice, worth 271 million dollars, in the first seven months of the Persian calendar year.

Iran imported more than 106 million dollars of rice from the United Arab Emirates since March 2008, making the latter the largest supplier of rice to Iran during this time, the state-run news agency Mehr reported on Sunday.

Pakistan and Uruguay were the second and third largest suppliers of rice to Iran since the beginning of the year, with 69 million and 53 million dollars worth of exports respectively.

Iran increased rice imports earlier this year, trying to cap the surge in prices in domestic markets.
