Feb 15, 2012, 19:31 IST | Agencies

Iran said today it would "revise" its oil sales to six EU countries in retaliation for a staggered EU ban on its petroleum exports, the website of state broadcaster IRIB reported.

"Today the ambassadors of some European countries were called in by the foreign ministry, where it was insisted to them that Iran will revise its oil sale to these countries," IRIB reported without giving further details.

The countries targeted were France, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain, it said. Iran has previously threatened to cut off oil supplies to EU countries.

But a diplomat from one of the six EU countries whose ambassadors were summoned by the Iranian foreign ministry told AFP on condition of anonymity that the oil issue "was not discussed."
