As reported by the Finmarket, Japanese Ambassador to Iran Kinitsi Kumano has stated that Japan intended to continue importing oil from Iran. According to him, oil imports will be continued, despite the fact that the U.S. and the EU have adopted sanctions against Tehran, aimed at reducing fuel imports from Iran.
The diplomat stated Japan was interested in developing trade and economic cooperation between the two countries, and that Iran was one of the main suppliers of oil to Japan, the edition reported.
According to the RG.ru, the sanctions against Tehran include strict limits on banking transactions with Iranian financial institutions. Japanese ambassador did not say how Japan would pay for oil deliveries.
The West expects that the reduction of revenues from oil exports will force Iran to reduce investment in the development of its nuclear programs. According to the West, these programs may have a military orientation.
Iran refutes these suspicions and claims that its nuclear research has exclusively peaceful purposes, the RG.ru reported.
