Amir Hossein Zamani-nia, Deputy
Petroleum Minister for International Affairs and Trading, told reporters on the
sidelines of the 2nd International Congress and Exhibition of Oil Exploration
and Production and the 5th International Congress and Exhibition of Iran's
Drilling Industry here in Tehran on Saturday that in case the US snaps back
sanctions on Tehran's nuclear program, the country would have no economic
justification to stay committed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action
"Not everything ends with
cancellation of the JCPOA and things may always happen," he said.
He said Iran's current crude oil
output stands at around 4 million barrels per day, adding the country exports
2.6 million barrels of crude oil and gas condensate.
"Oil has its customers but it
should be noted that Iran has not been forced to resort to creative methods to
sell its oil," he added.
