Out of 83 oil and gas projects worth $36 billion, 67 valued at more than $15 billion will come on stream by March, Mokhber said.

Iranian officials have stressed US attempts to disturb Tehran’s trade through sanctions have failed. They state Washington has been defeated in the maximum pressure policy against their country.
