New York, Sept 5, IRNA-An Iranian Petroleum Ministry officials has announced Iran's readiness to send twenty million barrels of crude oil to the United States to help Washington deal with the consequences of Hurricane Katrina in the city of New Orleans and two other southern US states.

According to a report by the US Dow Jones economic news agency, Iran's envoy to Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) Ali Kazempour has by phone proposed to US concerned officials that Iran can send urgently ten to twenty million barrels of crude oil to the United States, should the US sanctions against Iran permit.

According to the report, Kazempour added, "If the sanctions are lifted we can immediately send that quantity of oil to America." Dow Jones has not given any further details about Islamic Republic of Iran's help offer to US, put forth by Kazempour.

Hurricane Katrina has in addition to billion dollars of material damage and claiming thousands of lives in the city of New Orleans and two other southern US states, disrupted the activities at US offshore oil rigs in Gulf of Mexico to the south of the United States, due to which the oil refineries in southern US states do not receive the crude oil they need.

Hey I take it I sure will like to see some prices down at the pump, but taking in consideration how arrogant Mr. Bush is he probably will denied it.

Even Chavez was offering low price oil.

I guess some people don't have need for lower prices at the pump because they can afford it.

But most Americans need the brake and I am one of them. darn.

I wonder what Pat Robertson would say...You're right Ed, he would see this as an evil gesture on those nuke bearing monsters.
Who needs them.

Did you notice the 'carrot' in the Iranian statement?


WE have oil......this is ploy.

When countries such as Bangledesh and Sri Lanka give, it means something....


Iran wants brownie points, especially since the EU lost its bid with the nuke issue.
