Speaking to Shana, Mohammad Reza Rezaei Kouchi, who presides
over the parliament’s Civil Committee, said, “Despite the fact that sanctions
do have their impact, we have to admit that Iran’s oil industry has never
ceased to progress under the embargoes.”
He said the US had always strived to throw a wrench in
Iran’s oil exports and bring them to zero, but they had failed to do so.
“There might have been hindrances in the investment sector,
but great achievements have been made in regard to the petrochemical and gas
distribution projects in the country,” he added.
The MP said that the capabilities of Iranian oil and gas
exports are well recognized in the region and even in the world, adding, “We
have experienced the sanctions in the past.”
