Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zanganeh says Iran’s crude exports reached 2.44 million barrels per day as of October.
Addressing a televised debate, Zanganeh said Iran’s oil production hit almost four million barrels per day in October.
He dismissed the “sheer lie” report that he had met Egyptian counterpart Tarek El Molla and said, “I have had no plan or contract in that connection.”
To a question whether such a meeting will be held in the future, he said, “That there might be a meeting is a separate topic. We will hold talks with anybody except Israel if so wishes.”
