Speaking during a visit to the central city of Isfahan,
the official said, "We ought to produce the crude oil we require
domestically and export our surplus output."
He said the US Treasury has become the command center of the economic war against Iran, saying: "The chief target sought by the US
is inflicting the greatest damage to Iran's economy and make life difficult for
the Iranian nation and expand public dissatisfaction so that the Americans will
be able to pursue their agenda in Iran."
"We, as officials, must work out the best
methods against US measures," Mr. Jahangiri said.
