ANKARA (Reuters) - Cutting Iran's oil from the global market could not take place easily and in a few months as demanded by the United Sates, an Iranian oil official told the semi-official Tasnim news agency on Wednesday.

"Iran exports a total amount of 2.5 million barrel per day of crude and condensate and eliminating it easily and in a period of a few months is impossible," the official said.

The United States demanded all countries stop imports of Iranian oil from November, a State Department official said on Tuesday.
