Shafaq News/ Iran is continuing to sell its oil despite U.S. sanctions on Iran's oil exports, state television quoted Ishaq Jahangiri as saying on Monday, adding that Washington's "maximum pressure" on Tehran had failed.

"Despite U.S. pressure ... and sanctions on our oil exports, we continue to sell our oil using other means ... even as friendly countries stop buying our crude for fear of U.S. sanctions," Jahangiri said.
