TEHRAN - Iran has stopped providing fuel to European aircraft in retaliation for their refusal to fuel Iranian aircraft, Iran's state-run newspaper quoted a senior official as saying on Wednesday.

"In a retaliatory move, we have stopped providing fuel to European aircraft," said first Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi, the daily reported.

Last year, US President Barack Obama signed into law far-reaching new sanctions on Iran that targeted the country's fuel imports, punishing any company worldwide that exports gasoline or other refined petroleum products to Iran.

Reports said Iranian planes had been denied fuel in Germany, Britain and a Gulf Arab state.
