S. Korea to work with US to reduce Iran oil import

South Korean officials said Saturday that they will continue working with the US to reduce oil imports from Iran after President Barack Obama greenlighted potential sanctions against countries that continue to buy Iranian oil.



Foreign Ministry officials in South Korea said Saturday that they expect to reach an agreement with Washington by late June on reducing oil imports from Iran. The officials declined to be named because discussions were still under way. South Korea has already restricted financial dealings with more than 200 groups and individuals with suspected links to Iran's nuclear program. (AP)
