The president of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi, revealed this Friday that the Persian nation increased its oil exports by 40 percent, despite the unilateral restrictive measures imposed by the United States Government (USA) against that nation.

In this regard, he specified that, despite there being an interest in abolishing Washington’s sanctions in this sector, “Iran’s oil exports have reached such a level that we are no longer concerned. During our Government, oil exports have increased by 40 percent. The money earned here also goes back to the country,” he said.
Despite the US pressure policy, the president stressed that the export of Iranian crude oil has increased and, therefore, he is no longer concerned about the decisions of the White House.
According to a message on his social networks, Raisi reported that the national oil industry began to normalize its income.
According to the head of state, the increase in the production and export of crude oil since he took office as President in August 2021 represents a notable improvement in the national economy.
This increase occurs in the midst of negotiations between Iran and the G4+1 (United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany) to save the Comprehensive Joint Action Plan (PIAC), a mechanism that also seeks the return of the US. , something that, according to Raisi, will not prevail over the economy of the Islamic nation.
“We are not putting all our eggs in one basket when dealing with the sanctions imposed by Washington,” he stressed, referring to the Iranian strategy of diversifying its economic options.
For his part, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has threatened that if negotiations fail, Washington would be ready for other options.
Iran’s main demand in the Austrian capital is the lifting of the sanctions imposed by the White House on the oil and financial sector, as well as the verification and guarantee that they will not be reapplied in the future.
