GENEVA (Reuters) – Iran can lift its oil production back to the level it was at before U.S. sanctions were imposed within three days, the semi-official Mehr news agency cited Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh as saying on Tuesday.
“Three days are needed to return production to the levels before the reduction,” Zanganeh said, according to the report.
