TEHRAN, Feb. 07 (Press Shia Agency) – Deputy Iranian oil minister said Venezuelan oil and foreign ministers arrived in Tehran on Tuesday evening for Tehran-Caracas new oil talks to kick off in two days.
Iranian Deputy Oil Minister for International Affairs Amir Hossein Zamaninia referred to Iran’s oil negotiations with OPEC and non-OPEC countries for better management of the crude market saying “the country will continuously hold talks with all oil producers inside and outside the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in a bid to improve conditions of the market.”
The official said talks were also conducted in Tehran on Tuesday morning between Iran and Oman over oil market issues asserting “in line with the core policy, Oil Minister of Venezuela and Nelson Martinez and the Foreign Minister of the Latin American country Delcy Rodriguez will land in the Iranian capital in closing hours of Thursday.”
