Iran stops oil exports to Britain, France

Iran's oil ministry announced Sunday that it has stopped oil exports to Britain and France.

The announcement comes after the oil minister said earlier that Iran might halt its oil exports to some European Union (EU) countries.

"We have our own oil customers and the replacements for these companies have already been considered and we will sell the crude oil to new customers instead of the British and French companies," oil ministry spokesman Alireza Nikzad-Rahbar said.

He, however, did not reveal when the supplies were stopped, Xinhua reported quoting the website of Energy and Oil Information Network affiliated to the ministry.
