Iran's decision to stop crude supplies to Greece serves national interests

"Not supplying crude to Greece was in fact an executive planning and arrangement made by the National Iranian Oil Company and was in line with fortifying the national interests and pride," member of the parliament's Economic Commission Elyas Nadderan said on Tuesday.

He added that the oil ministry has taken the decision based on the authority vested in the ministry by senior Islamic Republic officials.

"For sure, that is a positive action because national interests should be defended and protected," the lawmaker said.

On Sunday, a Greek tanker returned home unloaded after Iran refrained from supplying crude oil to the crisis hit European state.

Iran refrained from supplying the 500,000-barrel cargo to the Greek tanker which was due to deliver it to Hellenic Petroleum refinery.

The development came days after Iranian Oil Minister Rostam Qassemi called on the European countries to make a final decision on oil imports from Iran, warning that they will be sanctioned by Tehran otherwise.
