ABU DHABI: An Iranian media report that Egyptian Petroleum Minister Tarek El Molla will visit Tehran on Monday for a meeting with his Iranian counterpart is incorrect, an Iranian oil official said.
“No, it’s not correct,” the official said in answer to a question about the report by the semi-official Mehr news agency, which had said both sides would discuss an expansion of crude oil trade.
