Iran's foreign ministry says the country's planes are refueling at airports around the world, denying reports that some countries are refusing supplies due to sanctions.
On Monday, the secretary of the Iranian Airlines Union was quoted on Iran's ISNA news agency as saying Iranian planes had been refused fuel at airports in Britain, Germany and the UAE because of U.S. sanctions. Authorities of those countries, deny an official ban on refueling Iranian flights.
They say halting supplies would be a commercial decision by private firms. A source in the UAE familiar with the issue said a private company there had refused to refuel an Iranian plane, but the UAE had imposed no ban of its own.
