Iran PressIran news: Mohammad Sadegh Jokar stated that in any strategic negotiation, the level of sensitivity and vulnerability to the outcome could overshadow the negotiation process, adding the Iranian Ministry of Petroleum has carried out measures that have reduced Iran's diplomatic vulnerability.

"Increasing oil exports under conditions of maximum pressure, focusing on the export of petroleum products due to regional conditions, signing a gas swap agreement along with the release of some hard currency resources, has reduced Iran's vulnerability before the Vienna talks," he told Shana.
