US Companies Welcome to Invest in Iranian Petroleum Sector, Says Oil Minister
US companies are welcome to invest in Iran’s oil and gas industry, the Iranian oil minister said Sunday.
State-run Press TV quoted Bijan Namdar Zangeneh as saying that “in general, we have no problem with the presence of American companies in Iran.”

“Of course, my deputy conducted these negotiations and when I inquired about them, it was said that the talks were positive,” he said.
