“The oil cargo purchased from Iran was discharged today,” Rossiya Segodnya, a Russian news agency, quoted Sergey Mikhailovich Grib, Deputy General Director for Commercial Affairs of Belarusian Oil Company on Thursday.

According to the news outlet this is the first cargo of Iranian oil sold to Belarus and the load of 80,000 tons (600,000 barrels) was discharged after the oil tanker moored at the port of Odessa in southern Ukraine.

Beloil Polska Company, established in 2010 as a subsidiary of Belorusneft, has signed a contract with Iran’s National Oil Company.  

Rossiya Segodnya quoted Grib saying that the cargo will be dispatched to the JSC Mozyr Oil Refinery of Belarus in the next week.

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko had told the parliament of Belarus, in October 2016, that Belarus had been in talks with Iran on supplies of oil and later in mid-February, the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) announced that Belarus’s Beloil Polska had purchased 600,000 barrels of oil from Iran.
