The Mercury - - WORLD - | Sput­nik

VI­ENNA: Ira­nian oil min­is­ter Bi­jan Zan­geneh ex­pressed hope yes­ter­day that the coun­try’s de­ci­sion to de­part from the deal reached by Opec and non-car­tel states on oil pro­duc­tion cuts would be met with un­der­stand­ing from the other sig­na­to­ries.

He says Tehran is not go­ing to dis­cuss oil pro­duc­tion quo­tas with Opec while it is be­ing sub­jected to Wash­ing­ton’s sanc­tions.

“We ex­pect them to co-op­er­ate with us. This is a min­i­mum co-op­er­a­tion. But if they don’t do it, we will not ac­cept any­thing else,” Zan­geneh said.
