Iran Oil Derivative Exports Resume

Export of petroleum products including mazut, diesel and gasoline that was interrupted in the past several weeks is gradually getting back to normal, spokesman of the Petroleum Products Exporters Union said.
“Neighbors, including Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, had suspended imports due to the outbreak of coronavirus. They have reopened their border-crossings with Iran and exports have resumed,” Hamid Hosseini was quoted as saying by IRNA on Monday.
Referring to Iraq, which suspended imports of petroleum products from Iran in March, he said the Arab state has eased (coronavirus-related) quarantine for the fasting month of Ramadan (started April 25), due to which consumption of oil derivatives is expected to rise.
