mollaThe Oil Ministry issued a statement reiterating its denial that Minister Tarek El Molla was on a visit to Iran, according to Al Shorouk.

There was confusion during the day after Iran’s “semi-official” Mehr news agency said El Molla was on his way to Tehran for a meeting with his Iranian counterpart, news that was later denied by El Molla himself and an Iranian oil official.

For the record, back in July 2015, Prime Minister Sherif Ismail — then Oil Minister Ismail — told Al Ahram that Egypt had no reservations about importing petroleum products from Iran.
