In comments on Monday, Ali Aqamohammadi said Iran has no problem in receiving money for the gasoline it has sold to Venezuela, reported Tasnim News Agency.
He said the money earned by selling gasoline to Venezuela on five oil tankers has been received and deposited in Iran’s Treasury.
Aqamohammadi, said the gasoline money has been deposited in the Treasury as a credit gained by the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company and the Oil Ministry.
Venezuela experiences difficulties with the supply of gasoline due to sanctions unilaterally imposed by the United States, which has also slapped unilateral sanctions on Iran, aimed at ending its oil exports.
The shipments have created a fresh diplomatic standoff between the US and Iran, with a US official saying Washington is considering measures in response without providing further details.
