Russian energy minister rules out oil imports from Iran

June 08:

Tehran, June 8, IRNA - Russia has no plans to import oil from Iran, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Monday.

Over the weekend, several media reported, citing Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh, that Iran would export up to 500,000 barrels of crude oil to Russia per day.

According to the Russian minister, Zanganeh 'meant that in accordance with a memorandum, we will expand economic and trade cooperation, and they [Iran] will sell their oil and use the money to purchase goods from the Russian Federation.'

Iranian oil will “definitely” not be imported to Russia, Novak told reporters. “Russia is a producing country, we are not going to buy.'

Novak said at the time that Russia had never discussed exchanging oil for goods with the Islamic republic.
