Iran had already stopped oil exports to France, Britain, and Greece and says it is now considering halting crude sales to Italy.

Iran had already stopped oil exports to France, Britain, and Greece and says it is now considering halting crude sales to Italy.

Press TV also said Iran planned to ban imports from 100 European companies as part of its retaliation against EU sanctions.
