US says no more reductions of Iran oil purchases

18 November 2015 20:53


US President Barack Obama emphasized on Wednesday that Washington will not seek future reductions of oil purchases from Iran and is committed to keep Tehran’s oil export at the levels of 2013.

“In the Joint Plan of Action, the interim arrangement to address concerns with Iran’s nuclear program reached between the P5+1, European Union and Iran in November 2013, the United States committed to allow oil purchases from Iran to continue at the levels that prevailed at that time. Accordingly, my Administration is not seeking further reductions of Iranian oil purchases,” Obama said in a statement released by the White House.

Dean Henderson, an American author and political analyst, has described Obama’s statement as ambiguous given that no reduction in oil purchases was ever planned under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) agreed between Iran and the P5+1 back in July.
