HERAT (BNA) The Afghanistan National Standard Authority (ANSA) has returned 8 oil tankers to Iran, after assessing them low-quality, a statement said Tuesday.
“At least 8 low-quality oil tankers had been stopped at the ground port of the country’s western province of Farah and returned to neighboring country of the Islamic Republic of Iran for being low-quality,” said the statement.
The National Standard Authority has recently taken necessary steps to prevent the import of low-quality oil and gas into the country.
Meanwhile, ANSA’s officials said no one would be allowed to import low-quality oil into the country and asked all national businessmen to import quality goods or they will be dealt in accordance with the law, according to the statement.
The Afghan National Standard Authority (ANSA) has earlier returned hundreds of tankers filled with low-quality oil in the country’s western and northern ground ports to the neighboring countries so far.
