Iran says US not able to prevent it from exporting oil

Iran says the US will never be able to prevent it from selling crude oil to international clients, stressing that no other supplier can match the quality of oil it provides to overseas markets.

Iran's First Vice President Es'haqJahangiri was quoted by media as saying that the government of President Hassan Rouhani had already devised means of countering the impacts of US sanctions on the country's oil exports. Jahangiri emphasized that Iran had serious plans to maintain a rate of oil exportation of over one million barrels per day. He said Iran exported as much as 2.5 million barrels per day of oil at times over the past months. While there may have been declines, Iran's exports would not drop below one million barrels per day, he said.
