Tehran does not let any country replace Iranian oil in market

Tehran, April 25, IRNA – Spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Abbas Mousavi said on Thursday that Tehran will not allow any country to replace Iranian oil in the market.

Mousavi made the remarks in response to stance taken by Saudi Arabia and Bahrain to support the US sanctions on Iran's oil export.

Such stance indicates that those countries are blindly following the US and are unaware of the consequences of their measure[s], Mousavi noted.

Tehran will not let any country replace Iran in the oil market, said the spokesman stressing that US and the above-mentioned countries will be held accountable for such a measure.

Iranian nation and government will never forget certain countries' hostility in this historic condition, the diplomat noted.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Mousavi commented on the mass execution of 37 Saudi nationals, describing it as a kind of measure like that of taken in Jahiliyyah (ignorance) era before Islam.

He further called on the global society to counter such maniac crimes against humanity.

Saudi Arabia in line with its discord-sowing policies under the shadow of the US support is taking such dangerous measures, Mousavi said stressing that the regional countries should be vigilant about the consequences of such measures.

Earlier, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif censured the US for keeping silent on Riyadh's execution of 37 men, saying that being a member of B-team including Bolton, Bin Salman, Bin Zayed and Benjamin Netanyahu gives immunity for brutal crimes.
