"A major Austrian oil company has indicated its readiness to purchase crude oil from Iran, following suit with other European companies that have already taken a similar step. In an interview with the Iranian Oil Ministry's official SHANA news agency on Sunday, managing director of ROTH oil group, noted that the group is mulling plans to start purchasing crude oil from Iran.
