Iran’s Deputy Oil Minister for Petrochemical Affairs Behzad Mohammadi said that Iranian petrochemical industry is ‘unsanctionable’, ONAreports citing MNA.
He made the remarks on Friday on the sidelines of his visit to the 24h Iran International Oil, Gas, Refining and Petrochemical Exhibition dubbed ‘Iran Oil Show 2019’.
“We have to prepare ourselves for [dealing with] the issue of sanctions. However, unlike Iran’s oil sector, the country’s petrochemical industry is unsanctionable,” Mohammadi reiterated.
The wide diversity of petrochemical products and high international demand for them make the nature of the industry unsanctionable, he added.
