Turkey and China help Iran on fuel supplies

Jul 09, 2010 02:00 AM

Friendly powers in the international arena are helping Iran get fuel supplies after the US passed unilateral sanctions that aim to hinder Tehran's fuel imports.
The Islamic Republic is buying around half of its July gasoline imports from Turkey and the rest from Chinese sellers, oil traders said, as most other suppliers have stopped selling due to the US sanctions.

Turkish refiner Tupras began supplying gasoline to Iran in June after a hiatus of at least 18 months, trade sources said, just days after Turkey and Brazil brokered a nuclear fuel swap plant with Tehran.
Western powers rejected the plan, and Turkey and Brazil responded by voting against the fourth round of sanctions on Iran at the UN security council.

China, one of Iran's main trade partners and a permanent member of the security council, signed up to the UN sanctions. But before it did so, Beijing demanded the measures avoid targeting Tehran's oil and gas industries.
Earlier, China denounced the United States for imposing its own sanctions on Iran.
