Embassy Rejects Media Reports on Iranian Offer of Free Oil to Jordan

Embassy Rejects Media Reports on Iran's Offer of Free Oil to Jordan

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's embassy in Jordan categorically denied media reports
alleging that Tehran has offered to supply free oil to Jordan for 30 years
in return for religious tourism.

Some media reports have recently claimed that Tehran's Ambassador to Amman
Dr. Mostafa Moslehzadeh has said during a TV program called the Fil-Sameen
(In Essence) on Jordan's private Josat TV channel that Tehran is ready to
supply Jordan with oil and energy for the next 30 years in exchange for
Jordanian goods and religious tourism for Shiites in the kingdom.

In reply, the Iranian embassy, in a letter to Josat TV director,
categorically denied what has been quoted in the report.

The letter said the Iranian ambassador had proposed that "Iranian and
Jordanian authorities negotiate with each other to expand trade, political
and cultural ties, including oil, and it will be decided during the course
of the negotiations what product Jordan will provide in return for (Iran's)
oil."

That proposal was in line with the Islamic Republic of Iran's macro strategy
for unity in the Muslim world and supplying each other's needs to help
Muslims reach self-sufficiency, the letter added.

Jordan has experienced widespread protests following a decision several
weeks ago to cut fuel subsidies.
