Country Has New Buyers of Oil
TEHRAN - First Vice President Iskhak Jahangiri, speaking of U.S. sanctions on oil exports from Iran, said that Iran had found new buyers and they had already purchased Iranian oil.
Jahangiri did not disclose who the new buyers of Iranian oil were, but he said that Iran is negotiating to sell more oil to China, Russia and Asian countries.
U.S. threats to different countries, regarding trade with Iran, are dangerous and impossible, Iran’s First Vice-President considers.
‘I assure the world that if Iran is deprived of its main source of income, it will not be silent, and will take appropriate measures, he added.
Jahangiri stressed that despite the U.S. sanctions, Iran can return its oil exports to the level of November 4, when the U.S. imposed the second round of sanctions against Iran.
On November 2, Washington announced that it would grant eight countries permission to buy Iranian oil when imposing sanctions on Tehran from November 5 to 180 days without the possibility of extending this period.
