Some Middle Eastern oil states needing US more: Zanganeh

زنگنه در دولت

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh mocked US claims that Washington doesn’t need Middle East’s oil, saying, “Some Middle Eastern oil states need US more than US needs them”.

On the sidelines of Wednesday’s cabinet meeting, Zanganeh answered a question about US’ recent claims that it doesn’t need Middle East’s oil by ridiculing the claim, saying, “US is right, Middle East’s oil needs US. I mean some Middle Eastern oil states need US more than US needs them”.

“Given the shale oil, US actually doesn’t need Middle East’s oil. But it still imports oil,” he added.
