Iran Warns Gulf States Not To Make Up Oil Shortfall [View all]

Iran has warned its Gulf neighbours to not make up for any shortfall in its oil exports under new Western sanctions, its OPEC representative said in comments published on Sunday.

“We would not consider these actions to be friendly,” Mohammad Ali Khatibi was quoted as saying by the Sharq newspaper.

“If the oil producing nations on the Persian Gulf decide to substitute Iran’s oil, then they will be held responsible for what happens,” he said.

Khatibi said Iran would consider any Gulf member of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries that “cooperate with the adventurous (Western) nations in substituting Iranian oil to be accomplices.”
