Iran’s Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh talks to journalists at the beginning of an OPEC meeting in Vienna, Austria December 6, 2018
Recall that Iranian oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh said on Wednesday that Europe was not cooperating with Tehran to buy its oil in the face of U.S. sanctions against Iran’s energy sector.
“The Europeans are not cooperating to buy oil,” Zanganeh was quoted as saying by Fars news agency.
In another development, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council on Wednesday said there would not be any military confrontation between Iran and the United States, the state news agency IRNA reports.
Worries about a military confrontation between Iran and the United States have mounted since attacks last week on two oil tankers near the Gulf.
Washington blamed long-time foe Iran for the attacks but Tehran denied any responsibility.
“There will not be a military confrontation between Iran and America since there is no reason for a war. Accusing other countries has turned into a common practice among U.S. officials as they try to pressure other counties,” Ali Shamkhani said.(NAN)
