Saudi, UAE overstate their oil capacities: Iran’s oil minister

April 26, 2019

TEHRAN – Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said on Friday that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates overstate their oil capacities, IRNA reported.

The comments were in reaction to expectations the two countries would fill any supply gap caused by a tightening of U.S. oil sanctions on Iran.

The U.S. behavior and its oil sanctions against Iran are not a bluff, but these are signs of Washington’s “very violent hostility toward the Iranian nation,” Zanganeh stated.

“The U.S. behavior and oil sanctions are not a bluff, but (the result of) very violent hostility toward the Iranian nation,” Zanganeh was quoted by IRNA as saying.
