Iranian official: States not wishing to cooperate with Iran to be included into black list
Countries not wishing to cooperate with Iran will be included into the black list, Iranian oil Minister Masoud Mirkazemi said in an exclusive interview to the Rusiya Al-Yaum television channel.
"Those states that do not want to cooperate with us, will get into our black list, and we will establish no trade-economic relations with them in the future," MirKazemi said replying to question what are the real causes of Lukoil's refusal from gasoline supply to the Islamic republic.
"Let all know that those who break relations with us, in subsequent years may miss a good profit," he said. "I can say that the sanctions were imposed not on Iran, bout on those companies that are deprived of profits that they could obtain in cooperation with us."
Meanwhile, MirKazemi said the country has already stated that all states have complete freedom in matters of cooperation and sharing with us their energy.
Iran plays an important role in ensuring energy security in the region and the world, he added.
