Iran has no trouble receiving oil money: Minister

SHANA — Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh said the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) is fully repatriating the country’s oil money from its buyers.

Speaking on the sidelines of a press conference on Saturday, the official told reporters that Iran fully receives its oil money.

Speaking on the potential rise in the prices of energy carriers, Zangeneh said, “We are not seeking an increase in the prices.”
