Iran urges OPEC members not to aggravate oil embargo
Iran's Oil Minister Rostem Qasemi sent a letter to the OPEC head Abdul-Kareem Luaibi, who is also Iraqi Oil minister, Mehr reported.
Qasemi sent the letter after a number of Arabic countries expressed interest in substituting Iran as an oil supplier to the European countries.
The letter urges the OPEC members not to aggravate the oil embargo against the Islamic Republic.
"Some OPEC countries should pursue reasonable policy. Joint cooperation is important between all regional players," the letter said.
On Jan. 23, EU foreign ministers agreed on Iran's oil embargo banning EU countries from buying Iranian oil in six months.
