Mirkazemi said that Oman had ordered the purchase of 160,000 tons of wheat to the ministry, which will be supplied in four stages.

Iran, one of the world’s major wheat importers till three years ago, has become self-sufficient in the production of the important crop and joined the exporting countries.

Referring to Iran’s natural resources like oil and gas reserves and mines, the official said that import view has to be changed to export policy.
