Iran increases by 50 percent oil exports to Germany
(MEBG) – An official German report has revealed that Germany’s crude oil imports from Iran, rose about 50-percent during the first five months of the year, compared to the same period in 1999, from approximately 188,000 tons to 385,000 tons.
According to the report, Germany's total crude oil imports during the January-May 2000 period amounted to 42.9 million tons, 0.4 percent less than the preceding year's corresponding figure.
Sources point out that general relations between the tow countries remain strained, although a warming is expected as a result of President Khatami’s imminent visit in Germany, the first by an Iranian head of state in several years.
