The ambassador recalled that Iran and Belarus have once conducted pilot transfers of oil and said that it should be a question to be considered outside of the political context.

"If our Belarusian friends are interested in these supplies, we are ready to launch negotiations.

And we are ready to sell at a convenient price, perhaps even lower than the global average. It depends on the Belarusian government's decision, whether they are ready to buy oil from us," the diplomat said.
