U.S. unable to zero out Iran’s oil exports: ex-diplomat

April 22, 2019

TEHRAN – A former Foreign Ministry spokesman believes that the United States is not capable of forcing Iranian oil exports to zero.

In an interview with the Arman newspaper published on Monday, Ramin Mehmanparast said the global energy market has certain restrictions and removing Iran from the market is practically impossible.

“Everyone is well-aware that if it was possible for the Americans to drive Iran’s oil exports to zero, they would have done so in the previous years,” Mehmanparast argued.

He added that the U.S. is merely waging a psychological war against the Iranian nation through such declarations.
