By Rahim Zamanov - Trend:

Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh urged the country's National Police Forces on February 1 to pay its debts to the oil ministry, Iran's Mehr News Agency reported.

"The police owe over $180 million to the oil ministry," Zanganeh explained.

Previously the chief of Iran's National Police Forces, Esmaeel Ahmadi Moghaddam, told the country's ISNA News Agency that the previous administration had paid for the 11 percent budget deficit of the police forces with an oil consignment.

He went on to note that while everybody is trying to find a way to bypass the sanctions imposed on the country, it is not correct to reveal the solutions.
