(Reuters) - Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh accused the United States on Saturday of causing tensions in the oil market through frequent comments about it, the ministry's news website SHANA reported.

"Americans talk a lot and I advise them to talk less. They (have) caused tensions in the oil market for over a year now and they are responsible for it, and if this trend continues, the market will be more tense," SHANA quoted Zanganeh as saying, in apparent reference to U.S. President Donald Trump's tweets about OPEC.
