IRNA reported that Iran's Embassy in Amman has rejected the Jordanian Josat TV report misquoting Iranian ambassador Mostafa Moslehzadeh over export of Iran's free oil to Jordan.

In a letter to the Josat TV director, the Press Section of Iran's Embassy in Jordan complained Tuesday that certain news sites had used the Josat's report misquoting the Iranian ambassador as saying that Iran was to export free of charge oil to Jordan for 30 years for what the TV channel had called religious tourism.

The letter said that "The term religious tourism was mentioned by the host of the TV channel's program while the Iranian ambassador had suggested, according to his taped statements, that Iranian and Jordanian delegations exchange views on promotion of bilateral trade, political and cultural relations including the issue of oil. It will be clear during the talks that what kind of goods could Jordan offer in return of the Iranian oil."

It added the ambassador's remarks were made completely in line with Iran's strategy of promoting unity among the Islamic World and meeting needs of Muslim nations in order to make them self sufficient.
