Ahmadinejad: Crude oil exports should be halted since the issue of oil is manipulated by big powers

Wednesday, 1 August 2012

Ahmadinejad addressed an inaugural ceremony for two big oil projects in Tehran’s Shahid Tondgoyan oil refinery. He argued that since the price of oil was determined “based on political situation instead of economic conditions… Otherwise, the real price of oil should have been very much higher in the market than what it is presently.” He added that the Shahid Tondgoyan oil refinery was the first refinery to have been fully completed by Iranian experts and an “indication of the complete nationalization of Iran’s oil industry.”
