Iran MPs to Question Minister over Import of Saudi Goods

An Iranian MP says the country’s Minister of Industry will be summoned to answer lawmakers’ questions on alleged import of goods from Saudi Arabia.

In a Farsi interview with the Tasnim News Agency, Iranian lawmaker Mohammad Javad Jamali said that Iran’s Minister of Industry, Mining and Trade Mohammad-Reza Nematzadeh will be called to account for importing Saudi goods.

The questions are about the type of commodities and their volume, the Iranian lawmaker added.

“Considering [our] relations with Saudi Arabia and the stance taken by the Saudi authorities against the Islamic Republic, we have asked the minister to explain how the Saudi goods have been imported to Iran,” he further mentioned.

Jamali also said that the questions will be presented to the Iranian Parliament’s Presiding Board and after being checked, they will be handed down to the Parliament’s Industries and Mines Commission.
