Zanganeh, speaking at a joint news conference in Baghdad with Iraqi Oil Minister Thamer al-Ghadhban, said Iran would not discuss the volume or destination of its oil exports while it remained under US sanctions. 

Ghadhban said Iraq had not yet reached an agreement with Iran to develop joint oil fields. He also said the decline in global oil prices had stopped and that he expected them to improve gradually.
