Emphasizing the fact that all the country’s ports in the Persian Gulf region are operating at their full potential, the official noted that the country’s non-oil imports have witnessed an over 15 percent growth this year.
“In terms of weight, non-oil exports are about two times more that imports, and since the beginning of the year, we have exported 13 million tons of non-oil commodities to foreign destinations,” he added.
In early June, two tankers were attacked in the Gulf of Oman, a key waterway used to transport energy supplies from the Middle East.
The United States blamed Iran for the attacks.
On June 15, the Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned British Ambassador Robert Macaire over the accusations.
Assistant Foreign Minister for Europe Mahmoud Barimani conveyed Tehran’s strong protest to the British government’s “unfounded allegations” and “unacceptable” anti-Iran stances.
